do I begin to tell the story of how great a love can be, the sweet
love story that is older than the sea, the simple truth about the
love he brings to me? Where do I start? With his first 'Hello!'
he gave a meaning to this empty world of mine. There'd never be
another love, another time! He came into my life and made the living
fine. He fills my heart! He fills my heart with very special things,
with angel songs, with wild imaginings. He fills my soul with so
much love that anywhere, I go, I'm never lonely. With him along,
who could be lonely? I reach for his "paw"... it's always
there. How long does it last? Can love be measured by the hours
of a day? I have no answers now but this much I can say:
know I'll need him till the stars all burn away. And he'll be there.
