Description
I wrote this 10 years ago for our 30th anniversary. This summer we will celebrate our 40th. I recorded it two years ago. The lyrics are probably among the best I have composed and I hope they will resonate with those who hear this song. We have been blessed and continue to be so.

Lyrics
When there’s no time or space,
Our love will be.
When there’s no earth of sky,
There’ll be you and I.
When all things come to an end,
We’ll still be such special friends.
We’ll never be lost.
Ever one we’ll be.

When there’s no rush of wind
Or a summer breeze;
When song birds cease to sing
In the forest trees;
When waves stop pounding upon the seashore,
I’ll still keep loving you more
Each moment forevermore.

We are a special pair
Sharing a love so rare.
Who ever thought there could be
Such a love as you and me?

When stars no longer shine,
We will still be one.
Even when day is done
There will still be sun.
And when all senses cease and night comes,
We’ll still be all right when night comes
Because of our lasting love.

Heartfelt
I love the sincerity in this one - the vocal is clearly coming from the heart. A pretty melody and the instrumentation builds the mood beautifully. Thanks for sharing it! 40 years - it always seems a long time when it's in front of you, no time at all when it's behind you. Congratulations!

I'm a predictable pushover....
...for songs from guys who love their wives, or parents who love their kids...I'm also a sucker for people whose themes run towards gratitude...

On the other hand, I WAS feeling good about myself as Karen and I coast towards twenty years together... I thought THAT was pretty good....[sigh]...forty years... And you such a youngster at that....

Beautiful Paul -
I love that it's as fresh to you as it was ten years ago. That's how it is - isn't it? Lisa and I just celebrated 26 years this month (31 together counting the 5 years of jitters before we got married).
Excellent performance and a rare treat these days.

wow...what a fantastic vocal delivery on a fantastic song....the kinda piece that carries a hit musical. did you really write this? are you sure it wasn't sondheim? this really is a very pro sounding and beautifully realised creation. devotional songs like this can often come across too sweetly sentimental....but this is honest and unaffected.....congrats.
