Once in a life time of pain and care
Someone touches your heart with a touch so rare
That the sun seems to shine just for you
And the whole world is born a new
Once in a lifetime of shadows alights
Someone loves you with a love that is honest and wise

And the sorrow of night fades away
And you wake till the laughter of day
I walked the plains I roamed the town
But what was lost could not be found
Till once in my lifetime of doubt and fear
You reached for my hand and my way was clear

Now I treasure each leave on it's tree
Love has opened my eyes, I can see
