Loving a Strong Woman
I always thought you were strong
And now that I’m weak, I know it’s true
You say you love me, but also the world
How can I stand up to all of that?
What I see in you is the life I want to live
I can only pray when we are apart
Will you remember a man who wants your hand?
Every night we spend alone
Is a moon that someone failed to see
Our precious time is short
Can you understand why I want you here?
I feel the tears now
A thousand for each lost year
A picture of your beauty
A longing recovered from memory
You became what I knew all along
Loving you like that is only for the strong
