~~ 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 within 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.
