Let Mine Slip Away

I heard Sleeping In The Stars and I could picture a couple through all the years and the words poured out.

Then I decided at the end why not do a soundtrack so listen along to the story.

I remember our first date

It seems just like yesterday

The way you smiled and played with your hair

I remember thinking, God this isn’t fair

The way she’s stealing my heart

I could see the end as we start

We talked all night and into the next day

We held hands and I didn’t let mine slip away

It was a beautiful day for late July

It didn’t compare to my beautiful bride

You walked down the aisle and our eyes met

How your smile lit up the church I’ll never forget

We said I do and I could forever see

I couldn’t picture my life without you and me

We danced throughout the night and into the next day

We held hands and I didn’t let mine slip away

We rushed to the hospital saying it was too soon

She was due in August and it was only June

We prayed she would be alright

I held your hand oh so tight

Eighteen years and now she’s on her own

Time flew by as she had quickly grown

We held her hands as she went on her way

A tear slipped my eye because I didn’t want mine to slip away

Through all the years and ups and downs

We were legends in this small town

Everyone thought we had it all together

But we had nights that seemed like forever

Sometimes we held on just by our fingertips

Sometimes life can be one strange trip

When we went to bed at the end of each long day

We held our hands and I didn’t let mine to slip away

The doctors didn’t know if you would make it to Christmas Day

I knew what they didn’t, you were stubborn that way

You smiled and I played with your hair

I thought to myself, God this isn’t fair

For just one more day, one more minute I was begging

But I knew the years we shared were a blessing

A savior given, an angel taken as Christmas Eve turned to Christmas Day

I held your hand, I didn’t let mine slip away

        Nothing wrong with that. My husband is a softy and very sentimental. We’ve been married for 53 years and we’re high school sweethearts. Continue to cherish the moments. When we grow older it’s sometimes all you have left.
