I love you in the morning

I love you in the morning and at the setting of the sun
And in the hours of darkness before the day's begun
And in my waking solitude to greet the break of dawn
I grant you sleep that extra hour, although you sleep alone.
I love you in the evening and into the night,
I love you and I need you even when we fight.
If loving you were solid gold
I'd be a millionaire, but love is gold enough for me
and money my despair. I wish your life be full of joy,
Of triumphs and acclaim, and when the tumult quietens down
I’ll be here just the same - a kettle on the boil, a fire in the hearth
And warmth throughout our humble home
and loving in my heart.
