Just for You--By John W. (Bill) Williams--United States

Just for You

I want to be everything
you want me to be;
I want to instill in your heart
a gentle love,
inseparable and fulfilling. . . .
I want to be by your side,
forever strong and caring. . . .
And when we will have grown older,
I hope your eyes sparkle as they do now,
and the warmth of your affectionate smile
stirs my heart as deeply. . . .
And, whatever the future brings,
I hope this heartfelt love
will be graced by God,
strengthened and sustained,
in this journey toward eternal victory.
