FOR MY LOVE ON HIS BIRTHDAY

You are the sun that melts the mountain snow
the valley through the rocks where streams may flow
strong arms that shield me from the dark to come
the song I hear when all my heart is numb.
You are the treasures tide-strewn on a beach
the love I feel when joy is out of reach.

When winter clouds rear dark above my head
you are the soft rain washing fear away,
and when I hear that soft, pursuing tread
you hold the light that turns my night to day.
You lift me up when I am burdened low
and carry me when all my steps are slow.

And though the way ahead be sometimes drear
it matters not as long as you are near.
