Lyrics

They met each other at a baseball game on a hot, humid August night.
From the very first kiss, they were bound to marry... Was meant to be, and so right.
After work every day he brought her flowers...He kissed her in the doorway
Would hang up his hat...hold her beautiful hands
This is what he would say:
"They're not as pretty as you. My love, I hope they will do....
I want to see a beautiful smile upon your face.
Long as we're together, we'll sail through stormy weather.....
We have a life time and with some luck and God's good grace.....
You will, forever, hold this heart of mine......
And forever is a long, long time."

Raised a family and grew older together.
Seemed it would never end.
But the doctor's report didn't look good for her, his best friend.
He would visit every day and hold her hand.
She seemed to have no fear.
Would bring her flowers, kiss her tenderly.
This is what she would hear:

"They're not as pretty as you. My love, I hope they will do....
I want to see a beautiful smile upon your face.
You will, forever, hold this heart of mine...
And forever is a long, long time."

He lost her on a Sunday morning.
He knew she wanted to let go.
She was laid to rest on a crisp autumn day....the sun was sinking low.
He brought her flowers as he'd always done, fall colors, orange and red.
Slowly knelt down to kiss the ground....
This is what he said:

"They're not as pretty as you. My love, I hope they will do....
I want to see a beautiful smile upon your face.
Long as we're together, we'll sail through stormy weather.....
We have a life time and with some luck and God's good grace.....
You will, forever, hold this heart of mine......
And forever is a long, long time.
And forever is a long, long time."
