[underlined] To My Wife and Sweetheart. [/underlined]
With these flowers take all my love,
And my devoted heart.
May they help the future to prove
Our love will never cast.

Even this finest flower cannot show
the love I feel for you.
But darling as in years we grow
May our love be true

Enjoy yourself tonight my sweet
and leave me here to yearn
for your love and kisses
on your safe return.

Yours. love John.
