SEASONS WITH YOU
Because of you I saw the sun, I watched the flowers grow. I watched the tiny raindrops fall Upon the earth below. Because of you I watched the trees Change colors in the fall. And as each leaf fell to the ground; A memory I recalled. Because of you I loved to see The snowflakes coming down; And the winters never seemed so cold; Because you were around. Because of you there was a spring, All a new beginning, Each season always brought us joy; From beginning to the ending. Its winter now and I miss your warmth; Your smile, your tender touch; And all the beautiful seasons We both loved so much.
