A Long Time to Love

As the first day of spring slowly fades into night,
I find myself five hundred miles from my love.
And all can do is imagine your kiss
And your eyes in this beautiful light.
I remember the first time you gave me your hand
How the sweet fiddles played and we danced until dawn.
I just couldn't believe you were holding me close
Like no one but a true lover can.
Twenty five years is a long time to love,
But I feel like we've only begun.
When you hold me the world seems to fall into place
And our love burns as bright as the sun.
When my time has come and I'm called to go home.
I will tell all my friends not to cry when I'm gone.
I have lived my whole life with a wonderful friend
And she'll be by my side when I go.
