30 day song challenge – day 27

30 day song challenge

Today’s prompt is: A song that breaks your heart

Oh Man! I hate songs that make me cry. Well, not hate, but I sure don’t listen to them. I used to sing this one, a lot, when I was young. I loved the melody and the flow of it. Then sometime later, I became mortal and began to understand the concept of life, death and loss. Cr** I can’t even’t get through the intro without crying. Without further Ado,

HONEY

See the tree, how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad,
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran out
To brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Came runnin’ in all excited,
Slipped and almost hurt herself
And I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart,
Kinda dumb and kinda smart
And I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin’ late
‘Cause I would know
That she’d been sittin’ there and cryin’
Over some sad and silly late, late show

And honey, I miss you and I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you if only I could

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I’d be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her cryin’ needlessly
In the middle of a day
And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I’m bein’ good
And I’d love to be with you if only I could

One day while I was not at home
While she was there and all alone
The angels came
Now all I have is memories of honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life’s an empty stage
Where honey lived and honey played
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed
That honey loved

And see the tree how big it’s grown
But friend it hasn’t been too long
It wasn’t big
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it,
Was just a twig
