HONEY

See the tree, how big its grown, but friend,

It hasnt been too long, it wasnt big.

I laughed at her and she got mad

The first day that she planted it, was just a twig.

Then the first snow came and she run out

To brush the snow away, so it wouldnt die.

Came running in was all excited slipped

And almost hurt herself and I laughed till I cry.

She was always young at heart,

Kind of young and kind of smart, and I love her so.

I surprised her with a puppy,

Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago.

And it would sure embarass her

When I came in from working late cause if I would know.

That shed be sitting there and crying,

Crying over sad and silly late late show.

And honey, I miss you - honey, I miss you.

And Im being good - Im being good.

Id love to be with you - Id love you to be with you.

If only I could - If I only could.

She wrecked the car and she was sad and so afraid

That Id be mad but what the heck.

Though I pretend hard to be

Yes, you can say shes soft to me and what my neck.

I came home unexpectedly and caught her crying needlessly

In the middle of the day.

And what was in the early spring

When flowers bloom and robbins sing she went away.

And honey, I miss you - honey, I miss you.

And Im being good - Im being good.

Id love to be with you - Id love you to be with you.

If only I could.

One day while I was not at home

While she was there and all alone the angels came - angels came.

Now all I have is memories of honey

And I wake up nights and call her name - call her name.

And now my lifes an empty state,

Where honey lived and honey played and love grew up - love sweet love.

And small tot passes overhead

And cries down on that flower bed that honey loved - how she loved.

And see the tree, how big its grown,

But friend, it hasnt been too long, it wasnt big da-da-da

I laughed at her and she got mad

The first day that she planted it, was just a twig
