He remembers the first time he met her
He remembered the first thing she said
He remembered the first time he held her
And the night that she came to his bed.

He remembers her sweet way of sayin’
Honey has something gone wrong
He remembered the fun and the teasin’
And the reason he wrote her this song.

Chorus:
I’ll give you a daisy a day dear
I’ll give you a daisy a day
I’ll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away.

They would walk down the street in the evening
And for years I would see them go by
And their love that was more than the clothes that they wore
Could be seen in the gleam in their eyes.

As a kid they would take me for candy
And I’d love to go taggin’ along
We’d hold hands while we walked the corner
And the old man would sing her this song.

Chorus:
I’ll give you a daisy a day dear
I’ll give you a daisy a day
I’ll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away.

Now he walks down the street in the evening
And he stops by the old candy store
And I somehow believe he’s believin’
He’s holdin’ her hand like before.

For he feels all her love walkin’ with him
And he smiles at the things she might say
Then the old man walks up to the hill top
And gives her a daisy a day.

Chorus:
I’ll give you a daisy a day dear
I’ll give you a daisy a day
I’ll love you until the rivers run still
And the four winds we know blow away…

- Hank Snow

I don’t know what I would do if I couldn’t create, it’s as natural to me as breathing, especially now that we have the means to achieve great art with digital photography. It’s so exciting and I feel that my creativity has finally come to fruition with these fantastic digital tools.

    I’ve had this photo sitting on RB for over a year and had completely forgotten it! A recent post of Lois Bryan’s which I absolutely love reminded me, so I thought I’d finally post it. Daisies are so perfect, they always make me smile. I hope this makes you smile too :)x
