This song was written for my late wife, Wendy (1953-2012).
All instruments played by Bob Ryan.
Recorded in October 2018 at Lightkeeper Music Recording Studios.


Do you remember when
I took the one-way wrong way
Trying to make it on time
To make our wedding day
And all your family was late
The preacher saying he couldn't stay
But with the cut of the cake
We'd made a glorious day

Now, I hold my spirit
Over the flame
Til it's good and ready
So I can go as I came

Yes I knew it was you
It was like you'd always been mine
Between that walk that you do
And a heart I never thought I'd find

And I sensed the shoreline
Of a brand new sea
And a beckoning horizon
Calling out to you and me

It holds me up
When I'm feeling down
It stops my eyes
From fixing on the ground
It keeps my heart
Responding to the sound of love

Now the years roll by
In the blink of an eye
If truth be told
It's something you just can't buy
And when the time is right
I'll cry an ocean for all the joy
When laughing's not enough
For this burning, happy boy

So I keep my spirit
'Neath the life-giving rain
So when it's good and ready
I can go as I came
