WHILE YOU ARE AWAY

While you are away from me,
When we must be apart;
Take these words I give to you,
And tuck them in your heart.
Keep them there inside of you,
For only you to hear;
Then if you're ever lonely,
Just know that I am near.
You are the very sunshine,
That shines into my soul;
The value of a smile from you,
Worth more than diamonds and gold.
You are the inspiration,
That causes me to soar;
And with each passing moment,
I only love you more.
You are the song with in me,
The rhythm and the rhyme;
A song that grows much sweeter,
With the passing time.
So take these tender spoken words,
And tuck them in your heart;
Then as long as my heart beats for you,
We'll never be apart.
