To hear the sparkle of your laughter
To feel the warmth of your touch
To smell the sweetness of your presence
To see the lightness of your love
You and I, side by side
You and I on this ride
You and I...
In a lifetime made for two
I searched the world to find you

In the darkness I can sense you
Breathing in the shadows

You and I... I’ve fallen deep
On a journey just us two
It was always you and I
Painting miracles in the sky
Touching greatness with our eyes
And tempting fate with our desire
You brought clarity to my madness

When I walked into work today, ready to go, coffee in hand, prepared for my day with my checklist of items that needed to be accomplished, when I satisfied all your needs quickly and then stepped up for other tasks, I wanted you to be happy. I wanted you to know that I was a good worker and was going to take care of you. But I didn’t do it for you. I did it for me.
I like the job I do, the...
