As Long As You Are Mine


I do not look for luxury... For pleasure old or new... I do
not ask for anything...As long as I have you... I do not keep
a calendar... To mark the day or year... I do not follow time
or tide... As long as you are here...You satisfy my every need
... wherever I may be... As long as you are at my side...To
love and comfort me... I do not follow winding trails...Or
search for hidden gold...As long as you are in my arms... To
have and always hold...I do not want the moon or stars... Or
any dream devine...As long as you are true to me... As long
as you are mine..
