In the Company of Birds

This is Love

Peggy Watson
words/music by P. Watson


Out here on my own

Staring at the stars

Wondering where you are tonight

Every breath I take

Brings you back to me

I wish I'd never said goodbye


The music of your voice

Gathers in the wind

Plays across my memories

I surrender to the sound

Lay my shield down

And remember what you gave to me


I know the joy of feeling strong

The beauty that lives on

When the flames have turned to embers

And how you moved me with your dance

On the edge of hope and chance

It's you that I still dream of

This is love


If I could just erase

The foolish things I said

And find a way to mend your heart

I'd steal back the time

Sow the fallow fields

Of tenderness that blossomed in the dark


Now, the memory of your eyes

Is all that lights the sky

When there's no one I can turn to

I long to feel your knowing hands

And pray you'll understand

It's you I'll always dream of

This is love
