I Miss You
My darling, I miss you. I live for your letters,
Sweet words you send me while we are apart.
I read them so slowly- to make them last longer
But soon they are over and soon YOU depart.
For, your letters transport me right to your side, dear,
And while I am reading I feel your kind heart.
I look o'er your shoulder to what you are writing
And leaving I kiss you, when time to depart.
I miss you, my darling, I long to be near you
And say all the things I feel in my heart
I love you, my darling, I want to be near you
I curse every moment we are apart.
