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.
