    If I could catch a million stars,
    I know just what I'd do,
    I'd arrange them on a paper,
    And sing them back to you.
    If I could give you gifts of gold,
    I'd have each one inscribed,
    With a special memory,
    That I hold, dear, inside.
    I'd give you everything you'd want,
    Or you could ever need,
    But that could never measure,
    All you've given me.
    With honesty and compassion,
    You lend a tender ear.
    And when I look into your eyes,
    My troubles disappear.
    But, I am not a rich man,
    Nor lucky enough to catch a star,
    I can only give you one thing...
    All that's in my heart.
    This is something you'll never be without,
    Whether you are near or far,
    For it is a simple but precious gift...
    My love is where you are.
