Showing Off Big Time - Poem by Henry Brown

VERSE 1

Baby when God made you He was showing off big big time
You are stunningly beautiful and baby you`re mine

Every time I see you my heart starts to pound
You`re my song and you`re my sound

I always want you close to me
To have and to hold I will make you happy

CHORUS

You light up my life and that is how it will always be
I’ve made you my wife and that’s for all eternity

Always by my side
My beautiful bride my hearts filled with pride
Together we are gonna enjoy life’s ride

VERSE 2

You have been gone only a minute or two
Already I feel like I’m missing you

I’m feeling a little blue
Please come to my side I really need you to

So we can do the things we want to do
Together forever just me and you


CHORUS

You light up my life and that is how it will always be
I’ve made you my wife and that’s for all eternity

Always by my side
My beautiful bride my hearts filled with pride
Together we are gonna enjoy life’s ride

VERSE 3

Was there ever a love as intense as ours
Was there ever a garden that had such beautiful flowers

That smelled so sweet after the rain
When you are gone my hearts filled with pain

I will always love you
Because I know our love is true


CHORUS

You light up my life and that is how it will always be
I’ve made you my wife and that’s for all eternity

Always by my side
My beautiful bride my hearts filled with pride
Together we are gonna enjoy life’s ride

I dedicated this poem to my Son-in-law and daughter which I wrote after their wedding. The phrase Showing off BIG TIME was part of my Son-in-laws speech at the wedding
