August 6th 1936 Chicago
I never knew until today
How really beautiful this blue world could be,
Until you smiled at me!
I never thrilled until today!
my heart had never known this feeling divine,
Until your lips met mine, your lips met mine!
A robin never sang as sweetly,
The flowers never bloomed so fair!
You seemed to change my life completely,
The moment you whispered you cared!
I never lived until today!
I never dreamed that love could play such a part,
Until today, sweetheart!
