Caption on Front: Ev'ry Little While
Ev'ry little while I feel so lonely, ev'ry little while I feel so blue, I'm always dreaming, I'm always scheming, because I want you--and only you; Ev'ry little while my heart is aching, ev'ry little while I miss your smile, And all the time I seem to miss you, I want to, want to kiss you, Ev'ry, ev'ry, ev'ry little while

Inscription on Back, Transcribed: I have not even got my mama with me tonight so I am all out of the luck, but never mind honey. I am waiting and praying for that happy day to come real soon, so I can have my mother, Sweetheart, and brother with me all [illegible] time, and believe me will sure have some happy family reunions. Well honey as I will write you a long letter tomorrow will close with lots and lots of love and kisses to my soldier. Love Your True Lover
