I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
Kiss Me Good Night
Our future looked bright—a new way of living.
We learned how to love—a new day was dawning.
Before we were two—now that would be changing.
You’d kiss me good night—and kiss me each morning.
We two became one—our lives interweaving.
We started our lives—a brand new beginning.
We gave up ourselves—by constantly sharing.
By kissing good night—and kissing each morning.
We moved on through life—with everything changing.
Each one of us grew—our interests expanding.
Together we loved—and just kept on living.
As you kissed my goodnight—and kissed me each morning.
We never had kids—no little ones playing.
The sadness we felt—was often dismaying.
But even while filled—with emotion and feeling,
You kissed me goodnight—and kissed me each morning.
We learned to give help—to those who were needing.
In church, school and sports—and sometimes in singing.
But no matter what—the help we were giving,
You kissed me good night sand kissed me each morning.
We both left our jobs—to begin our retiring.
And made all our plans—to start all our traveling.
But no matter where—we ended up sleeping,
You kissed me good night—and kissed me each morning.
Through sickness and health—we never stopped loving.
In good times and bad—we kept on surviving.
‘Til all that was left—I kept on believing,
You’d kiss me good night and kiss me each morning.
It seems now we’re old—the years have been passing.
Our lives have slowed down—our memories fading.
One day it will end—yet I’ll keep on praying,
To kiss you good night—and kiss you each morning.
Happy 46th Anniversary, Betty. I love you more with each kiss.
