All I Could Ask

I do not ask for anything... I do not weep or sigh... I do not
wish on any star... That decorates the sky... Why should I
covet anything... However old or new... When I have all
the world because... I know that I have you?... You are my
everything, my love... You are my very all...Today,and
then tomorrow and... Each song that I recall... I have
your loving promise, your... Abiding faith in me... Your
daily inspiration and... Your constant sympathy... What
more is there to ask of God... As human beings live?...
And in return I give myself... As much as I can give.
