  • Did You Know? (a song)

    This is a song I wrote and sung to my wife on our nineteenth wedding anniversary a few weeks ago, attempting to make it as romantic a moment as possible. I dressed up smartly and had flowers and chocolates waiting for her by her favourite armchair when she came home from her sign language lesson, her brother was hiding upstairs with his car parked around the corner so she wouldn't notice him being there. As she was looking at the flowers, he came down the stairs strumming the guitar and I began to sing:




    Did you know?

    Did you know, when you go,
    In my heart you leave a hole?
    My life isn’t full without you,
    You’re worth more to me than gold.
    When you smile, for a while,
    I feel like I can fly;
    It’s like heaven’s doors are opened,
    For you I’d walk a hundred miles.

    My heart is ever open
    To you, my precious one;
    Every time I bring you joy
    It is the greatest prize I’ve won.
    The day you said you were mine
    I truly came alive;
    I can’t imagine how to live
    Without you by my side.

    All the stars, with their cars,
    And their hotel rooms and bars,
    Are just wandering empty souls,
    They don’t have half the joy that’s ours.
    I’m so blessed to possess
    A companion on our quest
    To raise our children strong enough
    To cope with every test

    My heart is ever open
    To you, my precious one;
    Every time I bring you joy
    It is the greatest prize I’ve won.
    The day you said you were mine
    I truly came alive;
    I can’t imagine how to live
    Without you by my side.

    Yet here you are, my shining star,
    I love you just as you are.

      You got a golden voice! The guitar matched up quite finely and lovely and sincere prose!
      Definitely a genuine romantic song. :)

          That was lovely.
