Trigger Warning

I close my eyes, seeing you all night long
A love we planted now growing strong
We are rising up high never to fall
Deep in sleep, I can still hear your call

A love that has been through the furnace
Burning hot, coming out refined at last
Now we’re having moments of fun blast
We stayed patient and got grace from grass

In this world I am with you and we rule
Our love can’t be broken, they have no clue
Through heavy rainfall, the showers and dew
So many can’t survive, we are the few

In our heart this love is strongly anchored
Winds and heavy storms can’t drift us apart
