How Lucky We Are

When daylight fades

Darkness falls so sweet

Curtains are drawn

And our dinner is done


The children all bathed

Softly tucked into bed

Prayers have been prayed

Favorite books have been read


How lucky we are

to have all of this

Thank God I’m alive

And that I’ve been blessed

On this peaceful eve

Just you and me


When the lunches are packed

And the schoolbooks are stacked

All your candles are lit

In our comfy chairs we sit


You read for awhile

I fuss with the fire

Eyes meet and we smile

You’re my hearts desire


How lucky we are

To have each other

Thank God I’m alive and that I’ve discovered

My only you, my only you
