Everlasting Love

When that special feeling
You had from yesterday
Leaves you sad and reeling,
Count on me to stay.

When your world is falling
Like teardrops from the sky,
I'll be the one who's calling.
No need to wonder why.

When all hope is fading
And everything is blue,
My palette will be waiting
To paint your colors true.

And when December comes to call
And time has run away,
The love I have for you will burn
Much brighter than today.
