In Need: Betty Carmichael

I need you near me day by day
Or I miss you so much in every way
To make my life worthwhile
I need your dear and reassuring smile

I need your tender touch
It relieves me so very much
I want you in all my dreams and goals
Looking ahead seems to strengthen and console

I want your understanding heart
Which I treasure and hope will never part
I need your sense of joy
Just as a child gets with a new toy

Why is it that it is just this?
I do not seem to know
All, this seems to be so
But yet it is so
