13

 

Today we’ve been married 13 years.

Yesterday my mom and the kids surprised us with flowers and a song playing in the background, the song we had sung at our wedding.  I hadn’t heard it in a long time.  Evie said I would cry.  And I did.

I knew it was a popular choice at the time we were planning our ceremony, but the words resonated with me.  And they still do.  In fact they resonate more with me now because of the 13 years of ups and downs we’ve had together.  I will be here.  I will be here.  No matter what I will be here.  I will not go away.  I will not leave you.  I will be here.

And he has been here.

 

Tomorrow mornin’
If you wake up
And the sun
Does not appear
I, I will be here

If in the dark
We lose sight of love
Hold my hand
And have no fear
‘Cause I, I will be here

I will be here
When you feel like bein’ quiet
When you need
To speak your mind
I will listen

And I will be here
When the laughter turns to cryin’
Through the winnin’, losin’ and tryin’
We’ll be together, ’cause I will be here

Tomorrow mornin’
If you wake up
And the future
Is unclear
I, I will be here

As sure as seasons
Are made for change
Our lifetimes
Are made for years
So I, I will be here

I will be here
And you can cry on my shoulder
When the mirror
Tells us we’re older
I will hold you

And I will be here
To watch you grow in beauty
And tell you all the things
You are to me, I will be here

I will be true
To the promise I have made
To you and to the one
Who gave you to me
I, I will be here

And just as sure as seasons
Are made for change
Our lifetimes are made for years
So I, I will be here
We’ll be together, I will be here
