A HEART OF GOLD
A golden heart, a golden chain
Worn round my neck each day
Tells of two hearts joined in one
Together to tread life's way.
It is a little golden locket
And you will see inside
A photo of a soldier
On his arm, his radiant bride.
Also in his locket,
Hidden from other eyes
Lies a love, worth more than gold
A love that never dies.
This golden locket, speaks to me
Of one with a heart of gold
His love and mine, will ever be
The source of treasures untold.
