    This Is To Let You Know
    by Noel Coward (1899-1973)

    This is to let you know
    That there was no moon last night
    And that the tide was high
    And that on the broken horizon
    Glimmered the lights of ships
    Twenty at least, like a sedate procession passing by.

    This is to let you know
    That when I'd turned out the lamp
    And in the dark I lay
    That suddenly piercing loneliness, like a knife,
    Twisted my heart, for you were such a long long way away.

    This is to let you know
    That there are no English words
    That ever could explain
    How, quite without warning, lovingly you were here
    Holding me close, smoothing away the idiotic pain.

    This is to let you know
    That all I feel for you
    Can never wholly go.
    I love you and miss you, even hours away,
    With all my heart.
    This is to let you know.
