Thankful to know when the landscape is shining,
When warm winds are blowing
And nature is fair,
Thankful to find that your smile is still glowing,
Thankful to know that your music is there.
to know when the night sky is gleaming
And breezes are colder
But sweeten the air,
Thankful to feel your strong hand on my shoulder,
Thankful to know that you always will care.
to know when the morning comes calling,
The world reemerges
And moves everywhere,
As I am driven by all of its surges,
Thankful you steady the life that we share.
to know as the years lie before us
Love is a fabric
That nothing can tear.
As you transform ordinary to magic,
Thankful to know that you’ll always be there.
