Everlasting Love

I woke up from a dream today
Remembering who I was this day
And whispered to myself hallelujah
I closed my eyes to remember such
A life where i seemed so stuck and knewI'm not the same in this day today
I don't need to wander endlessly and search for something I already had inside me
I lost myself in the times before with ego-mind and rambling words and never though I would see the light shine through

Oh god this beauty seen has words so ever clear that saying them can't even give it meaning
To a love that's everlasting
My love for you is ever near
It fills my heart with clarity
I stand beside you unbroken 

Unbroken mends
Unbroken ties
Unbroken until the day I die
Unbroken words of love everlasting
Everlasting everlasting

The dream is now the life I live
It fills me up with absolute and takes away the need for silly notions
The clinging I left by the wayside
Like a Children's toy used up with all its joy
And a realized no more need to play

This silly game of talk and pride that strikes a chord it sounds like folklore
The music played with sincerity so ever lacking
I strum the drum to a beat of my own and ask myself to play some more
And sing my love that'slasting evermore

So follow me as I take the flow
That needs not pain or pleasure yet follows the stream of mind beyond reason
It holds a secret so profound , it sweeps away the webs of mind and give glory to the love that's everlasting .
It stomps away the sound of old and ceases to repeat again
The secret stored wakes up from sleep and makes a life that rises out of form and seizes love from unity deep within
I call out this dream as it is no more and give offerings to a love so everlasting 

As we reach the shore that's floats us to
A place where dreams become the real
The illusion of minds will lift at once
We hold our hands and walk the path the wipes away the sorrow and feels the earth beneath the skin
Let faith be the guide and doubt set aside and follow me to a love that's everlasting 

You will see again
The veil is lifted and clouds will no more fog your mind
Don't turn your back from the truth that's free and stay beside me as we walk along 

To a love that's everlasting
My love for you is ever near
It fills my heart with clarity
I stand beside you unbroken
Unbroken mends
Unbroken ties
Unbroken until the day I die
Unbroken words of love everlasting
Everlasting everlasting
