| Half a Heart
|So many years we have now shared as one, the good times and the bad,
Day after day we have struggled, for happiness against that which is sad;
Together we have climbed every mountain, reaching for a unified goal,
We have become the sum of one heart, no longer two, we are one soul.
|Under normal circumstances, one hundred years seems so long to live,
But each moment I spent with you, I feel that cannot be enough to give;
As our time together is but a passing shadow, in the scheme of eternity,
How absurd to think of us as separate, for we are no longer you and me.
|Standing as one, existing side by side, we have weathered every storm,
With each other we find comfort and that place where we stay warm;
Encountering the future in partnership, though not always eye-to-eye,
Because of our years as one, we've crossed each valley and ascended high.
|Anyone can certainly see the love we share, for each other and for God,
We have chosen to walk His path, in the comfort of His staff and rod;
Holding fast to His righteous Word, that the two shall become as one,
Our two hearts are fused together, and hereafter shall not be undone.
|Now hear me when I tell of how I feel, the pain and suffering I endure,
No one can know the anguish borne, how daily living becomes obscure;
Some have marveled at my brokenness, those times when we are apart,
But I tell you now, in all honesty, I cannot stand tall with just half a heart.
|Happy Birthday, I love you.
