The House I Built

Posted by kristenwillms@knights.ucf.edu on April 21, 2017 at 11:35 AM

The foundation was of caring

Trusting held it together

With acres and acres of love

In the house I built for us


I placed it in the sunshine

Beautiful songs and sweet sounds

And stars from Heaven above

In the house I built for us


It’s rooms were filled with sweetness

To cherish for all out days

Each designed with tenderness

In the house I built for us


It’s basis was the sensation

Your kisses gave to me

And the warmth in your caresses

In the house I built for us


I’ve been searching all my life

For creative perfection

And I gave that all to you

In the house I built for us


The walls have seen for years

The memories we now hold

Of all that we’ve been through

In the house I built for us


The time we spent together

Was something great indeed

The special relationship we shared

In the house I built for us


You were my only love

The one I gave my life

And I knew there was someone who cared

In the house I built for us


Now you’ve left my life completely

As you journey somewhere new

And I stay here growing old

In the house I built for us


The rooms all have been emptied

Of the gentleness they held

And the walls are stony cold

In the house I built for us
