Sometime between 6 January 1912 and 22 January 1912 Think of me oftimes dearest ...

Found in the early pages of  a diary which later became  a 'Diary of the War 1914-1915, 1916' by Ada Anna BRIDGEMENT. 

Think of me oftimes dearest
though we are far apart
others may have their comforts
but you still have my heart
G R Graves
