Ode to Johnnie

I wrote you in a poem
I sang you in a song
Before I'd ever met you,
For you, my heart would long.

You became my daily ritual
My frequent earnest prayer
Until the day I saw you
I kept faith that you were there.

I held you as a promise
From our Lord Above,
That you would know me as well
That your heart would fill with love.

And then I saw your picture
I knew from the twinkle in your eye,
Exactly what I'd been praying for,
Because the Spirit never lies.

So now you're here beside me
Body, mind and soul
The man that I'd been praying for,
With your heart of gold.
