Always My Hope

A little light for in the darkness,
All my love for within your soul
My hand for you to hold on to,
A warming smile when you grow cold.
My aching heart, which reaches out
When things seem gray or chaste,
The words of love, I send your way
Lift your heart, a smile on your face.

So if a little tear, from the eye must fall,
Please let it be a tear of joy
Catch it on the petal, of a Blue, Blue rose.
Then impossible though it may seem,
You will freeze for me, this moment in time.
So as to be saved for the Eternity,
That it seems to be,
Until we get to meet.
