Marcus Garvey - Love's Morning Star
October 31, 1927
I've waited patiently for you,

And now you come to make me glad;

I shall be ever good and true,

And be the dearest, sweetest dad.

You cheer my life with every smile,

And make me feet much like a bird

That flits and sings just all the while

Such songs as you have always heard.

You are the beacon light, my dear,

That guides me on the happy way;

Such love as yours I would not share,

But treasure in my heart all day.

I dream of you each eve and morn;

I picture you from distance far,

And everywhere, where love is born,

You are the brightest morning star.
