Today's date

Anniversary Song


Today has been a special day
An anniversary, a request
That you play your piano
As the evening sun slowly sets

I never knew I'd get this old dear
Never had a reason to live so long
And the lord's been like my shadow
Ever since I was wrong
No I never knew it would turn out this way

A birthday with apologies
For all the tears and the rest
And I've always saved your poetry
For those years when you forget

I never knew I'd get this old dear
Never had a reason to live so long
And the lord's been like my shadow
Ever since I was wrong
No I never knew it would turn out this way

So sing to me softly
As the day turns to night
And as I wander in paradise with you
I love you and good night
