“LIFE” — My Most Precious Birthday Gift!

Below are the lyrics to “LIFE” — the song D. wrote for me as a birthday gift. It is absolutely BREATHTAKING! Because it is precious to me I will not likely post the recorded version until I have possessed it long enough for it to feel sacred and MINE enough that sharing it is bearable. But I did want to at least share the absolutely heartbreaking and gorgeous lyrics of a piano ballad like only he can compose...the last line of course being the candle on the cake

I hope you are charmed by this. Obviously not like only I can be as the person is written for but still...
