Sweeter than life
are the memories,
I have in my heart for you,
You'll always bring back the sweetest days,
Those days when you loved me too.
Looking at the beautiful red rose,
I can still see your eyes smile,
The way you felt about me and how,
We knew our love was worthwhile.
Those days are long gone but forever,
I've held a real love for you,
And today I'm amazed you're wanting,
Me now enough to pursue.
I've thought about you so very long,
Even in dreams through the years,
And now you're back in my life taking,
My breath away it appears.
All the joy of those sweet times I've kept,
Deep within my longing heart,
Never regretting one moment my,
Unforgettable, your part.
You thrill my heart like you did in school,
Just to see you once more moves,
Me higher in Heaven's brightest lights,
The power of love behooves.
It is a magic moment for me,
In this time of life to hear,
From you and Oh how I remember,
Our love being so sincere.
I'll meet you somewhere we'll talk awhile,
Maybe dance together close,
Swaying to our song we may recall,
Even more than we'd suppose.
It will be wonderful seeing you,
Just to hold you near again,
Looking in your brown eyes then kissing,
Those dimples I know remain.
They say a joyful heart's the result,
Of a heart burning with love,
And that inevitable result's,
The magic of love thereof.
