Love, Me


I read a note my grandma wrote 
back in nineteen twenty-three.
Grandpa kept it in his coat,
and he showed it once to me. He said,
"Boy, you might not understand, 
but a long, long time ago,
Grandma's daddy didn't like me none,
but I loved your Grandma so."

We had this crazy plan to meet 
and run away together.
Get married in the first town we came to,
and live forever.
But nailed to the tree 
where we were supposed to meet,
instead Of her, I found this letter, 
and this is what it said:

If you get there before I do,
don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through;
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down, 
darling wait and see.
And between now and then,
till I see you again,
I'll be loving you.
 Love, me.

I read those words just hours before
my Grandma passed away,
In the doorway of a church 
where me and Grandpa stopped to pray.
I know I'd never seen him cry
in all my fifteen years;
But as he said these words to her,
his eyes filled up with tears.

If you get there before I do,
don't give up on me.
I'll meet you when my chores are through;
I don't know how long I'll be.
But I'm not gonna let you down, 
darling wait and see.
And between now and then, 
till I see you again,
I'll be loving you. 
Love, me.

Between now and then,
till I see you again,
I'll be loving you. 
Love, me.

Time For Me To Go

When I heard an Angel call my name
I knew then it was time for me to go
Oh, please loved ones don't  grieve for me
or fill your remaining days with sorrow

Make your lifes journey a peaceful one
keep it filled with love from each days start
you'll keep me alive within your memories
as I know I'm alive still inside your heart

Know from the moment I had to leave you
and on each day remaining know it will be me
Who'll be watching over you all from above
until in time once again together we'll be
