I'Ll Think Of You
As I go to sleep, I'll think of you -
The things we've done, the things we'll do -
And my dreams of you will last and love will stay-
though the slumber hours, until the light of day.
And daytime thoughts will keep you near,
and a worried mind, I need not fear -
For your image walks beside me,
in all my plans and schemes -
I wouldn't want it any other way,
I think we'll make a darned good team!
And I'll send you all my love-
Though we're a thousand miles apart,
and you can store it with the rest,
deep within your loving heart.
I'll think of ...
How many hearts need be broken, before that one heart dies?
How many harsh words spoken, before God hears their cries?
How many lifes are ruined, by a parent that just leaves?
How many children must suffer, Before the angels grieve?
How many people must go without, before one sees their needing?
How many crimes committed, to notice a city's bleeding?
How many loved ones perish, in the heat of anger and passion?
When will the empathy come, or is it out of fashion?
