Breaking night’s sky, I see hope shining in the sunrise
Morning’s light is here, drying tears – my soul comes alive
All alone I wait, for the day that we’ll meet,
where o where are you under night’s stars?
Morning brings me light – it’s sweet joy, and it’s filling my heart.
Breaking winter’s storm, I see hope bloom in colors of spring
Roses burst forth, and earth’s painted with the love you will bring
All alone I walk, under bluebirds’ sweet call,
My thoughts turn to paths meant for two.
Then spring’s song of life – it’s sweet joy, and it’s filling my heart.
Walking by your side, new light shines at night under moon
Deep red flowers fade, but our hands join in snow walks for two
You were always there, every sunrise, I knew,
Spring’s life sang dreams do come true
Now your song brings love – it’s sweet joy, and it’s filled up my heart.
Lyrics: Elizabeth Wheeler
