I'm Yours

I'M YOURS


She was only twenty-three
He was unemployed, but he was honest
And on the day that he proposed
He took her hand and held her close
And in her ear he whispered her this promise
And he's kept it all these years

He said I'm yours
Now and forever I'm yours
Take me for better or worse
I'll try to make you glad I'm yours
Now and forever I'm yours
Give me the chance and I'll love you till the day I die
I'm yours

Through the years he worried she
Would find a better life and leave
The fear would leave him feeling cold and haunted
And though no matter how he tried
He couldn't ever quite provide
The luxuries he knew inside she wanted
So he gave his heart instead
And he meant it when he said

I'm yours
Now and forever I'm yours
Take me for better or worse
I'll try to make you glad I'm yours
Now and forever I'm yours
Give me the chance and I'll love you till the day I die
I'm yours

And though he never knew it
He gave her everything she'd ever need
When he had said these words

I'm yours..
