Do you remember our first kiss?
How our hearts danced from pure bliss
Do you recall the song that was playing that night?
How you wouldn’t let me leave your sight
Do you still remember me?
The young lady that I used to be
Beyond the wrinkles surrounding my face
Can you still see a young heart in their place?
I am grateful how you still look at me the same way
Beyond my hair that has turned gray
Beyond my eyes that hold
Our journey of memories that will never grow old
I cherish each day that I am your bride
And you as my husband with such pride
In my heart I know that you still remember
Our days of happiness of a love’s splendor
I know that Alzeimer’s is trying to take you away
From the person I fell in love with that magical day
So please promise me that in time to come
You will still be looking at me through a heart still young
