Oh, to remember walks in parks,
ocean sands and ocean mists.
Oh, to remember holding hands,
sharing thoughts, giving gifts.
Oh, to remember wedding day,
lacy dress, church and cross,
Oh, to remember sharing vows,
placing ring and bouquet toss.
Oh, to remember children's pains,
children's laughs and children's fears.
Oh, to remember fun and games,
silly times and laughter's tears.
Oh to remember that last touch,
that last hug, that last kiss.
Oh, to remember pretty face,
my true love I really miss.
Oh, the mem'ries I hold dear,
all those mem'ries... ever sweet.
Oh, to remember precious times.
If good times only could repeat.
What's better than those memories?
Please don't misunderstand.
Just don't compare to yesterday,
Oh, to meet each other there!
With Jesus, we will stay!
Oh, to share that wonderment
forever and a day!
