I want the melody of my future

  To contain the deep timbre of your chuckle

  And the smooth comfort of your voice

I want the rhythm of my future

  To keep time with the beating of your heart

  And the strokes of your hand over my hair

I want the lyrics of my future

  To repeat the words you whisper in my ear

  And the vows we spoke at the altar

I want the harmony of my future

  To rely on the strength of your arms

  And the devotion conveyed in your shining eyes

I want the song of my future

  To be sung each morning as we open our eyes

  And on the day my soul slips away to Heaven’s gate.
