Lindey Boo--By Michael Todd--United States

Lindey Boo

You're always the light of my morning dawn.
Without you, surely the sun would not rise.
Your smile inspires the lyrics of my song;
All I hold dear, what I see in your eyes.

You're ever my heart's reason for beating.
You are my calling; I know that is true.
Make the most of precious moments, fleeting;
Let's stay together, always, me with you.

You're my life and my heart's inspiration;
Wherever you lead, I will follow there.
I was once lost. You are my salvation;
Not another like you, none can compare.

Lindey Boo, I love you, always and then,
I'll just turn around and love you again.
