For Both of Us

When I met you all those years ago
Your eyes sparkled when you smiled
I carried the grace of womanhood
With the innocence of a child
I remember that I thought back then
That if I lived to 103
I'd never forget my happiness when
Your eyes smiled at me.

I'll never forget our wedding day
Our rusty old car
The kids at play
I'll never forget the sleepless nights
The colicky babies
The stupid fights
I remember at church, in the shower, on the bus
I keep hold of these memories
For both of us, For both of us

Now your eyes stare vague and empty
At the nothing that is there
So I sit by your side, and hold your hand
And comb your silky grey hair
And I pray every night, in our bed all alone
With your picture on my knee
Let him come back Lord
Let him come back Lord
Let him remember me

I'll never forget the vow I took
For richer or poorer
By hook or by crook
I'll never forget the promise I made
To bring you home
When you started to fade
I'll remember forever, you always can trust
I keep hold of these memories
For both of us,
For both of us.

Lovely, Kath, just lovely.....

Reads really well, and it's kind of sad but uplifting at the same time.....you going to put this to music? I hope so, I'd love to hear this.....I had a bit of trouble deciphering the rhyme sceme, but I think I got it in the end.....

:D :D :D

Thanks to all of you gentlemen. Initially I was trying to write from the perspective of the Alheimers patient and pretty much got nowhere. I couldn't fathom what goes on in hte minds of those poor people!

Kathy,

Excellent!

When I got to these lines:
So I sit by your side, and hold your hand
And comb your silky grey hair

I became completely aware of the whole idea
behind the song.

Great Job and like the others I would love to hear
this one.

If I ever get the blasted @#$%$#@ digital recorder figured out, I will gladly post. As I mentioned to David last week, the manual seems to have been writen by 1000 chimanzees locked in a room for an indeterminate amount of time with 100 typewriters. I need the complete idiots guide to digital recorders!
