(Dickey Lee/Danny Mayo/Karen Staley)

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smilin' down on me
As I look at you tonight

I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts

I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms

I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft
moonlight on your face oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

So I tip my hat to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doin'
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew

    A special friend told me about this song, When I was reading the lyrics line by line, tears fell down on my eyes, never felt how this song touches my heart within, I never felt like this important to this special friend of mine until he tod me that this is for both of us... To the Keeper of the stars, thank you so much for brightening again my life, and to you my star, i hope we will always brighten each other's life!!! Thanks for coming into my world!!!
