In honor of Valentine's Day, I will post the lyrics to the first love song I ever wrote for the love of my life, Barry K. Lipson:
Only This Will Do
by Susan L. Lipson
You are the sun and the rain and the sky;
I know it's cliche, but that's what comes to mind
Whenever I think of you,
Whenever I dream of you.
If I could give you the sparkling stars in the sky,
I'd mix them in a glass of black velvet night
Served on a silver tray--
Champagne to toast the day.
There are many ways to tell you
How I feel for you;
Many love songs have been written, but…
Only this will do,
Only this will do.
You are the roots and I am the tree,
So you're always supporting me,
Even when strong winds blow,
Making my branches bow.
If I could give you this wonderful day,
I'd wrap it up in grass and tie it with hay--
A gift of green and gold,
A gift of new and old.
You are the flower and I am the bee,
I give to you and you give to me,
Helping each other grow,
We meet after every snow.
If I could give you a mountain to call all your own,
I'd drape it with flowers like a royal throne,
With the sky as your canopy,
You'd be Nature's royalty.
