A lady goes to work at a large department store and she’s friends with somebody in a another department who she doesn’t know very well, but is drawn to her. You know how you can just meet somebody and like them immediately. But over a short period of time this one lady begins to notice that the other lady is getting more and more solemn and depressed.
And finally, even though they have never really spoken, she walks over and says “Hi. I’m Ruth and we smile at each other from time to time. I hope I’m not prying into your life, but I could tell that something is wrong. Would you mind sharing it with me? Maybe it would be better if we talked about it.”
“Yeah, I’ll tell you what the deal is. I’m stuck in an abusive relationship.”
“Oh,” Ruth says, “listen to me. Don’t you put up with it for one second. Don’t you stay in any abusive relationship. No matter what, don’t you stick with it.”
“No, I don’t think you understand,” says the other lady. “You see, I live all by myself. And there’s nobody else in my life but me.”

Once I had a heart of stone
For it had surely lost its home
It could not love or wanted too
But in my life, then came you.
The stones began to fall away
As happiness began to fill my day
A feeling so sweet and special too
Could this be love, I pray is true.My heart now sings a song of love
For I know that it was sent from above
My heart is warm, there is no cold
Hard no more, but with wings of gold.It soars above the sky so high
Sometimes I think of why and cry
My heart now sings a loving song
For the part of me I thought was gone.The gift that you have given me
Is so important, can't you see
No more sadness or being alone
For now my heart returns to home.
I want to dance with you for a life time
Hold you close to my heart,
Stop the hands of time
Make the world give us a little more time
To feel our bodies close swaying together
To music that only we can hear,
Letting it sweep us into Heaven
Come, dance with me there
We'll dance forever; never let go
Hearts in tune hand to hand,
Building love between us
That we barely can stand
Candles low no bright lights
Our love will light the way,
Come hold me close; dance with me
Til the night breaks to day
Feel our bodies pressed close
As close as skin to skin,
Open your heart to me baby
Come on, let me in
Fill my senses with your rush
Let me taste your deep kiss,
Hold me tightly to your heart
Never have I felt like this
Never will I feel it again
For within your arms I've died,
I've gone to heaven in your love
These are happy tears I've cried
Never have I been so loved
Or felt so much love for anyone,
Dance with me honey
Until the night is done
Dance with me until the world is done
I can't resist your charms,
Dance with me and hold me close
Let me die within your arms
Don't ever let me go
Dancing with you is so right,
I will never let you go
Come....dance with me tonight.
I wanted a mansion once... that is until I met you,
Now the only place I want to live is inside your heart
I once desired diamonds... until I met you,
Now the only sparkle I need comes from within
I used to crave the finest clothing... until I met you,
Now I want not a single thread to separate our bodies
I once coveted a fancy car... until I met you,
Now I want nothing that would put miles between us
I once prayed for money... until I met you,
Now I want none of the things money can buy
I once yearned for a sense of security... until I met you,
Now my only security comes is knowing you are near
I once dreamt of a prestigious job... until I met you,
Now I find my success in knowing that you are happy
I once asked for the world on a silver platter... until I met you,
Now you are my world and I want for nothing but your touch
Loving you has been my teacher; you taught me not to want
Being with you has been my discovery; you are all that I need
Finding you has been my salvation, I now understand grateful
But perhaps most importantly ...
Your love in return has been my everything.
Every time you call I'm filled with joy
For it's one mo
re time I get to hear your sweet voice.
I love to hear your laugh.
I swear I can see it through the phone.
It's what brightens my life
From dusk till dawn and morning till night.As night starts to set
Butterflies crawl in my stomach and never seem to go away.
Then comes this awkward silence that so many like to break.
But this kind is different.
It's the kind of silence that you don't mind having around
The kind that lets you know
the person you love is just on the other side
Saying without words, I love you.
