I say good night to you, my love and then I dream of you,

Until another day arrives and life begins anew.

I say good morning in the dawn and greet you with a smile,

Too thank you for the many ways you make the world worth while.

Your ever soft and soothing words that calm my wildest fears,

Your fond, forgiving nature when I bring you only tears.

The happy songs you sing to me with courage in your heart,

And your endearing letters when we have to be apart.

You are my hope and vision and my faithful, guiding light,

In every bright good morning, love, and every sweet good night.

Leon Russell Garrett

    • My father wrote this and other poetry during the Korean war on a ship. I’m sharing it. I never knew he wrote until his things were sent to me.

      • WOW, that is so amazing, what a great part of him to have!! I guess I just assumed that you had written it on his behalf.

        Seems your dad was a very talented poet! The story of him and you in itself is beautiful. You are very blessed to have his writing now. 🙂
