A Love Of My Own


I would rather have someone to love me,

A spirit my heart could embrace

Than to have all the gold in the mountains;

Such treasures cannot take the place

Of a love which would always be faithful,

A someone who really would care,

Who'd be part of my joys and my sorrows,

My secrets and struggles to share.


I wish I had someone to love me,

A heart to whom love I could give,

For then I would welcome tomorrow

As love offers reason to live.

I need to have someone to love me,

A someone whom I could love, too.

Out of all of the world's lonely people,

Could my special someone - be you?
