by Pauline Cole

I like to walk in the day with
it being warm and the sun shining brightly.
I like seeing you day by day
and I like seeing you smiling at me.
I also like hearing the birds singing
above my head when you're whispering to me.

If you could come and walk with me,
it would surely make me smile and
smile so brightly; that it would
brighten up the day even if I'm feeling sad.

I would like it very much if
you would keep on loving me everyday.
I know that one thing is true,
that I will always love you.
