Today I was overflowing with joy
And wished that I could see you
For you were so much on my mind,
So I wondered what I could send
To this special friend of mine.
I thought this beautiful flower basket
Might be such a refreshing gift
To warm your day and touch your heart,
Somehow expressing all I'd like to say.
And bring your heart a lift.
With my thoughts soaring ever higher
Up and over, through the azure skies
We become as close as close can be
And if I pause and pray a while
I can always imagine your smile.
Now there's the bell, I'm at the door
Don't worry to fix your hair, just go
And reach out your tender hand to receive
This pretty basket I picked for you
For all my love to know.
Soft Whispers from
For memory has painted this perfect day with colors that never fade and we find at the end of a perfect day, the soul of a friend we made.
