The Gift of Love
The gift of love you've given to me
Has opened my eyes - now I can see.
There's so many things I want to say
Like how I love you more each day.
You've given to me the gift of love
My heart's taken flight just like a dove.
There's so many things I want to do
To show just how much I really love you.
How can I find the right words to say?
Thank you for the love you give every day.
The only thing that I can do
Is give the gift right back to you.
All I can offer you is my heart
No matter the distance or time we're apart.
I know that nothing will ever replace
The gift of love I wear on my face.
For the gift of love is a wonderful thing
It sets your heart on a pair of wings.
It sends your life to the clouds above
This beautiful, tremendous gift of love.
