Your Love for Me
I feel as if I’m adrift upon a stormy sea,
the wind and waves pushing me farther and
I’ve lost all sense of direction.
Your love for me is like a bright beacon
shining in the darkness, guiding me home.
I feel as if I’m drifting aimlessly.
Your love is like an anchor, keeping me
I feel hopelessly lost.
Your love is like a compass
that gives me direction and keeps me on
I’m surrounded by darkness,
cold and afraid.
Your love is like the brightest candle,
giving me light and warmth.
Sometimes I feel like giving up.
Your love for me gives me courage
and the strength I need to continue.
I know deep inside, I will weather the storm
and someday I will come home to you.
Because without your love,
I would be forever lost.
