Tonight As You Sleep
Tonight as you go to sleep
I hope your thoughts will turn to me
As you feel the love I send to you
From so far across the sea.
You have touched my heart so gently
I don't know if this is what you meant to do
Am I the only one to feel this love
Or do you also feel it too.
Do you feel the beating of my heart
When I hear your voice on the line
Do you sense the emotions
That you bring to me
That only seem to deepen over time.
Do I let this love just flourish
Or do I try to control the things I feel
Will time and distance make a difference
Can love like this become so very real.
I wonder if we will go on from here
Or will fear put a hold on these things
Can faith, joy, hope and trust
Be enough to see what the future brings
See what the future brings our way
As we take each day as it's given to us
For life offers no guarantees at all
But we can believe in love and happiness
So keep this love I send to you
It's given freely from my heart
I pray the friendship that it brings with it
Will close the miles that keep us apart
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It is not Rude,
It is not self seeking,
It is not easily angered.
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil,
But rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
Always hopes, always preserves.
Love never fails.
And now these three remain,
Faith, hope and love,
But the greatest of these is love.©"
