More Than You'll Ever Know


Be a shoulder for you to lean on
Sail across the ocean just for you
Ever so lonely when you are gone
Love you more than you'll ever know

All that I've ever hoped for
A rare jewel I have found in thee
Like a bird is how our love will soar
Love you more than you'll ever know

Will be forever and always thine
Love for you grows more each day
Say that you'll always be mine
Love you more than you'll ever know

Two hearts that are woven together
Will withstand the test of time
We've come through the stormy weather
Love you more than you'll ever know

Love thats true will ever be bright
Like diamond found in a piece of coal
Thats how my love for you will grow
Love you more than you'll ever know

    Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.

    I love the recurrent rhyming within this. I think true emotion in our writing impresses more
    deeply than just a style of an era or words put down without thinking (as this one surely is not done
    without thinking- but with intense emotion) (Report) Reply
