If Love Could Fly I Would Put Wings On Mine
If love could fly I would put wings on mine
and send it away .away back in time.
To the one's I loved so long ago
But not very often got the chance to tell them so.
If hug's could fly I would put wings on mine
and send them away away,back in time.
to hug a mom and Dad so gentle and kind
If words could could fly I would put wing on mine
and send them away, away back in time
and tell all my loved one's that have gone away.
that I miss them and all the things I never got to say.
If regrets could fly I would put wing on mine
and send them away.away back in time.
My childhood was gone way to fast
Since I am getting old I look to the past
and with so much regret for all I have missed
If wishes could fly I would put wings on mine
I'd wish my self myself away away back in time
Just to be a child again for a little while.
to say to Mom and Dad it's so good to see you
And once more see their face and see them smile.
I never got to be with my mom and dad at Christmas
Just one Thanksgiving day the memory will last.
I always had to be some other place
after I married and left my home at fifteen
For a love I though would always be mine
As a woman I looked for that love
but that love I could no longer find.
My Mom and Dad is gone now and it's not meant to be
All the wishes I wish can't bring them back to me
But one thing I will always hold dear
At Thanksgiving and Christmas My Children are.
always here with enough love and hug's to share
