If I should die tomorrow
I'd count my life complete
For having known the wonder of your love
Though we have yet to meet.

If I should leave this earthly life
The only thing I would miss
Is never having known
The pleasure of your kiss.

But I dont intend on leaving
'Til I've looked into your eyes
And whispered all these words of love
That I hold deep inside.

God wouldnt be so cruel
As to take my life, you see
Before I've had the chance
To hold you close to me.

So I go on counting days
Yes, hours and minutes too
They bring me ever closer
To sharing my life with you.

Wow this is good.
I sure hope God reads it and sees that you still have some living and loving to do before you die.

Paula my dearest sister, as always you write with absolute beauty. I love this you know I do, and no love HE isn't cruel HE is love, and understanding it so well HE encourages it to grow and prosper. Put your faith in Love and it will be all you deserve. Don't I always say you deserve the best love, and you will get it truly.
love and warm stuff
Take care of you love
                 Mushy
                    
YOU are a writer and a teacher my sweet sister, you've taught me loads, love and hope, and to never give up. Thank you

Take back the hope you gave,- I claim
Only a memory of the same
