Masterpiece

Story

I had this beautiful first half of this song and knew it was heading toward the typical wedding song. But actually, it was my in laws 50th wedding anniversary that pushed it to conclusion.  Originally written several years ago, I always felt it needed a bridge.  As frailness crept in and I watched the beautiful way the family rallied around them, the bridge came very clear.

Lyrics

Two people dance, one silhouette

We’re alone on our own private stage

We each play a part

On a living work of art

That will only come to more light with age

 

We will spend our lives putting the finishing touches

On the ever changing picture of you and me

At the end of our day we’ll look back and see

Together we created a Masterpiece

 

There will be rain and rainbows

Meadows and mountains to climb

But love is about

Smoothing the edges out

Patiently painting one stroke at a time

 

We will spend out lives putting the finishing touches

On the ever changing picture of you and me

At the end of our day we’ll look back and see

Together we created a Masterpiece

 

Bridge

There will be no wall of glory

To hang this love of ours up on

But in the hearts of those we bring to life

Our story will live on

 

That will be our legacy

 

We will spend our lives putting the finishing touches

On the ever changing picture of you and me

At the end of our day we’ll look back a see

Together we created, and forever we’ll create it

Together we created a Masterpiece
