Now and Forever (Mae's Song)

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this song for Mae and asked her to marry me. She said yes! So before I gave my vows, at the wedding ceremony, I played this on my old acoustic guitar. She cried, the minister cried, but we all made it through...and 25 years later I dedicate it to her, but offer it as a classic love ballad for others falling in love and getting married.

Now and Forever
my love is true
though the winds of time
may blow the sands of change
our way
I want you to know
that I will always stay

Now and Forever
 I'm devoted to you
though the stormy seas
of life may shake our shore
I'll stand firm in what I know
and I will hold your hand

But, Now and Forever
 is not that long of time
when you think of just
how long I have waited to
love you

Now and Forever
love will abide
certain as the sun
and sure as the
stars on Heaven's door
I intend to love you
Now and Forever more
Now and Forever more
