Thanks for listening, much love


Alma we’ve been married sixty years and still I live
For the sight of your smile
Big and bright like a kid
And to think it all began
At a silly high school dance
Like a portrait I preserved it in my mind

Alma oh so steady
On the dot was supper time
You gathered our loose pages
Sewed us up a spine
And our family it grew
Time as it does flew
Do you remember ‘love me tender, love me true’?

Alma I am stubborn and I do things on my own
It’s part of who I am
It’s what I was shown
I put these little notes all around the house
This one is your toothbrush
And here is your nightgown
Won’t you sit with me tonight and watch the sun go down?

Alma I been hiding that my body’s failing too
The children want to help but that’s not what we do
You don’t recognize me but my life I promised you
And I won’t leave your side

Alma I been thinking
We could slip away
Leave our broken bodies on the bed where they lay
And we’ll go dancing once again under the stars
That’s when I first found your heart
That’s when you first stole my heart
