Tonight I Won't Be Alone

When you are away more than a day is
when I realize most how much I love you
lonely I always am but feeling fortunate
have someone loving me the way you do.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder is true
because when you're away I miss you so much
I can feel pains deep within my heart and soul
all missing your sweet voice and gentle touch.

Feelings of happiness engulf my entire body
on the wonderful day you come back home
my spirits are lifted and my loneliness departs
because I know tonight I won't be alone.
