To Keep You Close


If all the days and months and years... Of time were put
together... And all the winds and rains and snows...
And every kind of weather... And if I could have lived
them all... And known you from the start... You
would have been and still would be... The creature of my
heart... And if my love through all that time...Could
fit into a thimble... It would adorm your finger as... A
faithful, boundless symbol... The real and soulful symbol
of... How much you mean to me... As long as there
is any life... And through eternity... Because by any
mete or bound... As time and tide may measure... You
are the one I always loved... And I shall always treasure.
