Dust covered shelves
Holding pennies from wells
Fishing line dreams that can be cast
Pictures from someone else’s past
All the movies that I’ve seen
All the lyrics I can sing
All the meanings I’ve gleaned
You’re still my best thing.
Gifts unwrapped before smiling eyes
Failures gained after a million tries
Collections built by dollars spent
Words taken opposite of what meant
All the miles that have gone by
All the golden leaves fallen from trees
All the wrinkles formed around my eyes
You’re still the best thing that’s happened to me.
