Have a little faith in me



A thousand rainbows
we vowed to see,
Side by side,
Fingers entwined,
Hundreds seen, rest yet to see,
Have a little faith in me.

Dusky days, 
no shadows cast,
Solace you seek
in my arms,
Through golden tresses I whisper to thee,
Have a little faith in me.

Sands of time 
trickling down,
'No time for me'
you complain,
Kiss you soft, an earnest plea,
Have a little faith in me.

Our wrinkled faces shine so bright,
Side by side,
Eye to eye,
Till death do us apart, 
a promise to thee,
Have a little faith in me.
