To Tell My Love


The days and nights are all too brief... The hours are
too few... In which to let you know how much... I
am in love with you... Because I could begin today...
And I would never end...The words that I would whisper
or... The letters I would send...And all of them to-
gether to... The very end of time... Would never be
enough to say... My sentiments sublime... But all the
little things I do... Are heartfelt and sincere... And all
of them are meant to show... That I adore you dear...
I dream of you the whole night long... Wherever I may
be... And day by day I try to say... How much you
mean to me.
