Together always…

Out of the mirror stare those eyes
A face I barely recognise
Etched by life’s continuing test
Lines from smiles and tragedy’s fest.

As I shave my skin so tough
Feel my way with hands so rough
Wondering how my life would be
Without your love sustaining me.


Close to sinning years ago
You steered me on these paths I go
Tender love helped me along
You always help to keep me strong.

Now I need the strength for two
I’ll be right here alongside you
Whatever else that we endure
We’ll face together like before.
