I sought out a love, a true endless love
With whom I could always share my days
My prayer was this love would find me
Bringing exquisite joy in my life to stay

I dreamed often how her embrace would be
Also how her gentle smile will make me feel
She would not have to be a perfect love
But in her spirit she just had to be real

I wanted someone who most of the time
Was ready in life to share similar dreams
I wanted her to color each day of my life
With many of the important smaller things

I also would need her to understand
That I was not a perfect human being
But I would promise to always love her
And to her praises I would daily sing

I would strive always to be the one
She always embrace in her dreams
For deep within a joyful premonition,
I saw she would love the me I bring

And each day still I receive my answer
To all the prayers I would daily pray
For I have my true love right beside me
Knowing in my life she will always stay.

(July 1977)
