About I Do Not Know A Day I Did Not Love You
This song was written for the 1970 musical Two By Two, which starred Danny Kaye and told the story of Noah and his ark.  The production was troubled: Danny Kaye did not particularly like the book and so began to improvise, which some patrons enjoyed and others felt compelled to write the New York Times about to complain. Somehow, it did manage to run for ten months.

Lyrics

I do not know a day I did not love you
I can’t remember love not being there
The planting when the earth ran through your fingers
The harvest when the sun danced in your hair

I do not know a day I did not need you
For sharing every moment that I spent
I needed you before I ever knew you
Before I knew what needing someone meant

And if we ever were to have tomorrow
One fact alone is full and filled with song
You will not know a day I do not love you
The way that I have loved you all our lives
