Close To My Heart

Dear one, I hold you to my heart..with my most
gentle touch...For there is no one else on earth...I
cherish half so much... You seem to scatter all the clouds
... However dark the day... And when the tears would
fill my eyes ...You kiss them all away... In you I find
the courage and... The faith and hope I need... To
fashion life within the mold...Of every worthy deed...
I could not do without you for...The smallest part of time
... Because your very picture is... The only perfect
rhyme...You are the happy song I sing... When every-
thing is right... And when I see you in my dreams... I
hear you say good night.
