Happy Birthday My Love


I've started writing this about a hundred times but nothing came out right.  The only thing that worked was the Vince Gill song, Look At Us, which I've known all along I wanted to make part of my message to you.  Then, I listened close, real close, to the lyrics... slapped my forehead and said... Damn, it's already written and it's perfect.  So Darling, here's what I want you to know on your birthday...


Look at us
After all these years together
Look at us
After all that we've been through
Look at us
Still leaning on each other
If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us.
Look at you
Still pretty as a picture
Look at me
Still crazy over you
Look at us
Still believin' in forever
If you want to see
How true love should be
Then just look at us
In a hundred years from now
I know without a doubt
They'll all look back and wonder how
We made it all work out
Chances are
We'll go down in history
When they want to see
How true love should be
They'll just look at us
