"Give me a reason", I asked,
and a voice returned, "I do",
"give me a season to be",
and a voice returned, "for you"
"Give me a happy song please,
and add a little love"
And a voice returned, "I will",
and sent them from above,
"Give me a day to feel,
and touch a small, small child,
"For you" he said my dear, but only for awhile,

"Give me the power to see", I added,
"I want to taste it all",
"So, I see" he said,
and filled me up with walls,
"Walls", I asked, "what are they for,
"you shall see", and he closed the door,

So now I have the words,
"I do, I will, and "you shall see",
"But Lord", I asked, "what are these to be",

"Happy pain, and sad long sorrows,
summer songs, and days you borrow,
beautiful souls, and autumn winds,
friends and loved ones, will take you in"

"Oh", I said, though quite surprised,
"but Lord, but Lord, will I survive,

"Through love and comfort, from far away friends,
through days of courage, my love won't end,
through lonely struggles, I will be,
with all this power, you will see,
you'll understand, you see, my child,
life is only, for awhile",

And with that he kissed, my heart and soul,
and branded me, with an overflow,
thats the day, I said, "I do",
and he whispered back,
"I love you, too!"
