To gaze upon your glowing beauty each day
Fills my heart with the special 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 glance my way
Becoming the tender 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 embrace the true beauty
Of the sweet love my heart knows it needs

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

(April 1977)
After Finishing Basic Training, I had to attend
A training class at Keesler AFB April the 15th,not
knowing how my life would change near the end of
April whe I would first meet my wife to be. Each
night we had to go to our separate dormitories,
and would not see each other until after classes
the next day. In those days, we had many a date
at Mc’Donalds right outside the base gate. We
dated the old fashioned way. We would marry June
the 24th 1977.
