Daisy A Day


He remembers the first time he met her
He remembers the first thing she said
He remembers the first time he held her
And the night that she came to his bed

He remembers her sweet way of singing'
Honey has something' gone wrong
He remembers the fun and the teasin'
And the reason he wrote her this song

I'll give you a daisy a day dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away

They would walk down the street in the evening'
And for years I would see them go by
And their love that was more than the clothes that they wore
Could be seen in the gleam of their eye

As a kid they would take me for candy
And I loved to go tagging' along
We'd hold hands while we walked to the corner
And the old man would sing her his song

I'll give you a daisy a day dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away

Now he walks down the street in the evening'
And he stops by the old candy store
And I somehow believe he's believin'
He's holding' her hand like before

For he feels all her love walked' with him
And he smiles at the things she might say
Then the old man walks up to the hilltop
And gives her a daisy a day

I'll give you a daisy a day dear
I'll give you a daisy a day
I'll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away

This a picture of my beautiful Mom it was taken at the time her and Dad were getting married.
Daisies of course are her favorite flower, which then makes this her favorite song that my Dad would sing to her. At the graveside of my Dad all the grand children and great grand children placed a daisy on top of his casket as they were saying their goodbyes. click on link and you can listen to the song. http://solosong.net/daisy.html

This is so sweet. I love this picture of her, and you just keep coming up with more stories than I've heard before. Where was I while all of this was going on?

Didn't know that about the daisies. How tender those memories are for you.
