You may ask what love is
And what must a man do
I’ll tell you today baby
With this Short & Sweet I’ll show you

To love is to share life together
to build special plans just for us two
to work side by side
and then smile with pride
as one by one, my dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise
to take time to share
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special
one who you can always depend
to be there through the years
sharing laughter and tears
as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall
of all the good things
that sharing life brings
love is the greatest gift of all.

I've learned the full meaning
of sharing and caring
and having my dreams all come true;
I've learned the full meaning
of being in love
by being and loving with you.

If I could have just one wish,
Lord knows I need a few but…
I would wish to wake up everyday
to the sound of your breath on my neck,
the warmth of your lips on my chest,
the touch of your fingers on my skin,
and the feel of your heart beating with mine...
Knowing that I could never find that feeling
with anyone other than you.
