The Better Part of Me

The way you speak so softly,
The way you say my name;
The tender way you touch me,
I'll never be the same.
No one has ever moved me,
To give my heart completely;
The part I held so tightly to,
You took from me so sweetly.

You move me like no other,
There just aren't words to describe;
The way your heart has touched mine,
And the way I feel inside.
The times that I am with you,
Are when I feel so whole;
You are my anchor in life's storms,
You keep me in control.

So, keep the very heart of me,
And treat it tenderly;
You are the reason that I live,
You're the better part of me.

Love of My Life
