To gaze upon your glowing beauty each day
Fills my heart with the true joy it needs
As happiness finds itself overwhelming me
Your sweet beauty my heart seeks to seize

And I look forward each day to our meeting
So that by chance you might look my way
While becoming the object of my affection
While chasing the loneliness in my heart away

For I find each night to be so lonely now
When in my dreams your face I always see
Knowing I cannot reach out and touch the beauty
Of the sweet love my heart silently needs

So I know I must find a way to be contented
Until the new day’s brightness comes my way
Allowing your smile to unlock the nightly bars
That each lonely night keeps us far away.

This is one of the very first poems I wrote for
My wife to be, two – five days after meeting
Her at Keelser AFB, where we both attended
Technical school in April 1977. In the Air
Force we were always separated at night
Because she stayed in our Squadrons Women’s
Dorm and I in Our squadrons Men’s dormitory!
