All The Things You Are

words by Oscar Hammerstein II – music by Jerome Kern

You are the promised kiss of springtime

That makes the lonely winter seem long

You are the breathless hush of evening

That trembles on the brink of a lovely song

You are the angel glow that lights a star

The dearest things I know are what you are

Some day my happy arms will hold you

And some day I’ll know that moment divine

When all the things you are, are mine

This was the favorite song of my dad, the first music lover i have known.
He passed away last Tuesday and is now resting peacefully in the arms of my mom.
