Thank You, Dear


I thank you for your friendly thoughts... The loving
words you say ... And for your fond rememberance on ...
Each special holiday ... I thank you for the smiles that
give ... Encouragement to me ... And for the consola-
tion of ... Your heartfelt sympathy ... And I could go
on thanking you ... A thousand times and more ... For
all the other things that I ... Am truly grateful for ... I
only wish that I could do ... Some favor in return ... To
bring you all the happiness ... For which you ever yearn
... But this I say sincerely and ... This much I promise
you ... Forever and forever, dear ... My love belongs to you.
