Adorbs (as the kids today would say) Valentine's Day postcard from 1919

"Daddy — I started a letter to you tonight, but I am so sleepy" states the sweet message on this Valentine's Day postcard that's dated January 31, 1919. And that's it. No other information, identifying or otherwise, on this 99-year-old piece of ephemera.

The front of the card features a young girl sitting in bed with her doll, puppy and quilt and the message:

The burden of my heart
Is this: I love you,
And life would empty be
If I lived without you

The postcard was printed in the U.S.A., but no publisher is listed. There don't appear to be any other copies of this card online, at least per Google's search.
