To the Princess Gene
I Miss You So
I found these words (in a song written by Jimmy Henderson, Bertha Scott, and Sid Robin) that expressed my feelings.
Those happy hours I spent with you
That after glow, most of all I miss you so
Your voice so soft and low
Most of all I love you so
You once filled my heart with no regrets or fears
Now you'll find my heart filled to the top with tears
I'll always love you, and miss you so.
Once you promised me we'd never part
Now I long to see the day you're near.
