A Walk To Remember

Image Source

Today on this cold evening
Let us get lost in each other
Forget the world and its foibles
Holding hands, let us walk together

Look around at the world
Everything is so beautiful
Your loves does that to me
Being with you makes life fruitful

Looking at us, the sky smiles
Bestowing upon me its grace
I feel the chill down my spine
As you hold me in an embrace

Happiness was only a word
Until you showed me its meaning
All the bad was just washed away
With your wonderful forms of healing

Let us celebrate everything today
Life, love, togetherness and joy
They say it comes in many ways
But my happiness came in the form of a boy

Let us paint the city red
With our love and madness
We don't have to worry about getting lost
In your heart, lies my address

Today I can walk all night
Your love makes me feel strong
The mild wind is calling out to me
With you I can walk all night long

Let us make a mark on this day
On this simple evening of September
Hold my hand and don't let me go
Let's make this a walk to remember
