VERSE

Time is a healer
but it cannot heal my heart
my mind says I've forgotten you
anf then I feel my heart.
The miles lie between us,
but your fingers touch my owm.
You're nearer far away from me,
for you're too much my own.

REFRAIN

You're nearer
than my head to my pillow.
Nearer
than the wind is to the willow.
Dearer
than the rain is to the earth below.
Precious as the sun to the things that grow.
You're nearer
than the ivy to thw wall is.
Nearer
than the winter to the fall is.
Leave me,
but when you're away you'll know
You're nearer
for I love you so.
