for Dave

I remember the little things
like when you walked me down the aisle.
You said ' It's not too late to run for it"
I tried so hard not to smile.

I remember leaving Goldie at the cabin
as we went out fishing for the day
and you having to haul her in
because she swam to the boat anyway.

Or when we went to Vegas.
Passing the hotel where Elvis had his show.
This was not too long after Elvis died.
You said " I'd have got you in" , I said " I know".

There's all these little memories
that are running through my head,
that any other time would make me smile
but now make me cry instead.

I know I should be thankful
that you're no longer in pain.
I hope you know how much I love you
and that our loss is Heaven's gain.
