SONG LYRICS

I read our letters in my room
Look at your pictures when I’m missing you the most
A clipping from the local news
A colored photograph outside of our first home

I never felt more heaven than when you were in the room
Thank God we’ll be together when I come back home to you

So love me patient, love me kind
I love you through eternal life
Forever started in St. George
You’re always by my side
Hold me like you did when we were young
And love me like it’s 1961

The sweetest part of almost 60 years
Is our six angels with angels of their own
And I wish you could be here to see
And share with them the light you always shone

I never felt more heaven than when you were in the room
Thank God love lasts forever cause I’m coming home to you

Love me patient, love me kind
I love you through eternal life
Forever started in St. George
You’re always by my side
Hold me like you did when we were young
And love me like it’s 1961

What if I hadn’t gone to that dance?
What if I had said yes to that man?
But mother taught me God has a plan
And you were His plan for me

So love me patient, love me kind
I love you through eternal life
Forever started in St. George
You’re always by my side
Hold me like you did when we were young
And love me like it’s 1961
