Eve of My Life
by Michael D Nalley
I knew I wanted something, but I only knew how to dream
She knew she wanted something, but she only knew how to scheme
I captured her attention, as she captured my esteem
We were tired of getting ice, while others got the cream
We thought reality was a thing as cold as ice

I sought to posses her beauty, as she sought to posses my sweat
We danced beneath the tree of life, because we chose to forget
The illusion we had created in our life was only a silhouette
But she was the most beautiful illusion that I had ever met
An illusion as beautiful as the Eve of paradise

I felt warm as she gave to me the illusion of affection
She felt safe as I gave to her the illusion of protection
But the forbidden fruit of that tree only leads to death
We must face the justice of the One Who gave us breath
The forbidden fruit has an awful heavy price

Our desire to escape pain, in reality, filled our cup
With the pain we ran from, we had to drink it up
We hoped to return to the paradise where there's no pain of birth
Redeemed by our Savior the Son sent by the Father to the earth
In the reality of love the Lord
made this sacrifice
