Because Of You

Because Of You
Rainy days won't bring me down as long as you are near me,
Happy and content is my heart holding you so dearly.
Dreams come easier knowing you're in my life to stay,
My soul is ecstatic as all lingering doubts fade away.
Life was never like this till I saw your angel face,
I had wandered aimlessly just looking to find my place.
I had visions of love yet somehow you've exceeded them all,
with one single smile I found myself feeling ten feet tall.
No matter where you go-I'll follow for this my love is true,
I thank my lucky stars today and it's all because of You.
without you I'd be lost in the jungles of a life so blue,
I hold my head up high now and it's all Because of You.
cherishing the moments we spend through the longest night,
when I'm surrounded by darkness you shine your guiding light.
remembering days when I thought I'd never reach the top,
Now the emotion of love I feel is unconditional and nonstop.
Laughter rings like a melody now when before I felt just Ire,
I never realized I was so down until you relit my fire.
The song of my soul sings the lyrics your love provides,
no longer will I be riding misery's rollercoaster rides.
running in the fields of tomorrow dancing the day through,
to a song that was thought up all Because of You.
My heart is a rekindled fire My soul pure and true,
since I discovered my life is full Because of You.
