Silver light trickles in the window,
And I can feel my heart beating,
Like the thunderous pulse of heaven
Feel the warmth of breath inhaled –
Deep within cavernous lungs;
And that’s all I need.
What more can I ask for,
Besides this new day and your smile?
I can breathe, and revel in my thoughts,
Getting lost in the miracle of memories
Amazed that I have a voice that’s heard,
And a soul that feels and cares;
I know you’re always there,
Whatever happens it’ll be all right.
I want to hold on forever,
But even more than that,
I want to let go,
For as precious as this life may be,
I know there’s still more –
Waiting beyond the bend,
Higher, always higher than my dreams.
What more can I ask for?
