Love is a Refuge
You have a place in my heart
That no one could ever have.
You will forever be my always,
Through the good
And through the bad.
It's hard to believe it's true
When people say they love me.
Pain isn't something I'm new to,
And trust doesn't come easily.
Before I met you, love was a betrayal,
A cruel form of manipulation to a little child.
Now and since I've known you, love is a refuge,
A shelter from the storm that rages internal.
I haven't had many things in my life
That I can truly be proud of,
But for two years and five months
I've been more than happy to show you off.
You are the only thing
That gives my life any meaning.
Into the storm went my faith and
Somehow you brought it back,
And for that I hope you know
I'll always have your back.
