Some Flowers For You

A rose for every year,
many smiles for every tear
Way more of the first than ever of the latter
What's deep in our hearts is all that really matters

We've learned a lot, yet still a lot to learn
For that "smile in your eyes" my heart still yearns
Keep giving me a chance to show you my love
We've always found a way to rise above

We know what we have and we've made it this far
We often say to each other just how lucky we are
To have what we have when we look in their eyes
We both know we've been given the ultimate prize

A family who cares and can say how they feel
There is no doubt this family is real
It's a life full of hustle that is crazy sometimes
But I can honestly say these are the "BEST of times"

I'd do it again in a minute, no doubt
You have in your heart what I can't live without
These last 15 years have been so special to me
I think I see now what everyone else can see
