For You Alone


I hope you never know a
tear... Because of what I do
... Or that the shadow of a
fear... Will ever come to you
... I want to give you beause
for pride... In what I try to
be... I want you to be satis-
fied... With every part of
me... Because I love you and
because... My life is that
musch less... If there is ever
any pause... In all our hap-
piness... I want to do as much
as I... Am able to command
... To gather sunshine from
the sky... And place it in
your hand... To take the
stars that fill the night...
And lay them at your feet...
and do whatever else I might
... To make your life complete.
