let me treasure you for a little while, for the road ahead is long – and I so often need your smile, to cheer me as I go on.
let me treasure you for a little while, let us talk of birds and flowers – or hidden houses in the trees, a pleasant way to pass the hours.
let me treasure you for a little while, there will be time for other things – for fame and fortune to be found, when you have gone on angel wings.
let me treasure you while the day is new, while the sun yet shines on high – while on the grass still lies the dew, which come the night will light the sky.
let me treasure you while you are here, sharing these moments with me – let me treasure you now just as you are, for I shall need the memory.
sincerely, Grace Day
