​Reason To Be

This song is by Tom Paxton.

My love lies beside me breathing soft and slowly
Deep in slumber holy out on a sapphire sea
On her lips but barely a gentle smile is playing
A hint of come what maying as she lies close to me

She is the one touch of heaven I know
Here on this vagabond planet below
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be

My love finds me waiting when the dawn comes creeping
When she is done with sleeping with a whisper prayer
She goes to her window as she is meditating
She knows I am waiting, she knows I'll be there

She is the one touch of heaven I know
Here on this vagabond planet below
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be

She will rise and wander through the long green grasses
As the warm day passes she might pause to rest
I will walk beside her hand upon her shoulder
As we're growing older still I love her best

She is the one touch of heaven I know
Here on this vagabond planet below
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be
Deep in the peace of the morning I see
She is my reason to be
She is my reason to be
