I thought of the many years
As I looked at mom and dad
Of love and joy, a few tears
And the special times we had.

But in my heart just then-
A reminder to warrant a pause
Asking, "How long has it been
That I hugged them 'Just Because' "?

Was it only when giving to me
At a birthday or special season?
I cannot remember you see
How many were hugs for no reason.

As I look upon mom and dad now
At faces with creases and lines
I know I've forgotten, somehow
To hug them for 'nothing' at times.

I've decided to see them today
To give what's long over-due
I'll hug them e're tightly and say
"This is 'Just Because' I love you."

"I'm not here for money to borrow
Or favors to ask, as before
This hug couldn't wait 'til tomorrow,

'Just Because'.........

"May I hug you both once more ?"

Grow Old With Me

Grow old along with me
The best is yet to be
When our time has come
We will be as one
God bless our love
God bless our love

Grow old along with me
Two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun
When the day is done
God bless our love
God bless our love

Spending our lives together
Man and wife together
World without end
World without end

Grow old along with me
Whatever fate decrees
We will see it through
For our love is true
God bless our love
God bless our love
