I'd love to spend a day with you
And make it last a lifetime.
We'd fin through waters deep and blue,
And walk bare-foot through morning dew.
I'd hold your hand, and say to you,
"I love you", in the morning.

And then the day would be half spent
The morn would turn to mid-day.
We'd thank Him for the time He lent,
And wonder where the morning went.
Into your eyes I'd look intent
And say, "My Dear, I love you".

When evening sun shall hide it's face
And lengthy shadows fall,
Together we would take our place
In peaceful quiet, face to face,
And feel each others warm embrace,
I'd whispering say, "I love you."
