Loving Memory

by Thomas K. Hunt


People with smiling faces have the hearts to feed the world
Smiles come from the heart
They should plant their smiles before they disappear
We need beautiful smiles to blossom every year

Nickle candy at the corner store
You know the one I'm talking about
Everything that was near was far
I could call you with just a shout

We'd yell “gun it” to the pilots then we'd jump right in
Rode that backwash down the river for another spin
Laid back and enjoyed the thrill of those rides
We did it right there off of Riverside Drive

It was the center of the world
Right there where Mary meets John
Close your eyes and picture that time
Go on travel back in your mind

The innocent days enjoyed so many ways
Just the thought should bring a smile
I'm sure you're smiling right now
Smiling of a thought you haven't thought for a while

Kicking hard to reach the sky
Little faces in the sun
Minds full of the why's
Surrounded by a river of fun

It doesn't matter of the time
It's there to cross the mind
It's always been on track
Creating memories to bring back

Think back to when you stood there to
There's been more then a time or two
You've been traveling, you may be right there
Dig up a smile go on and share


No matter how far you roam
No matter how far you've gone
It's still the center of the world
Right there where Mary meets John

This is all about you
Bring back your own memory
This is who you are
Share a smile between you and me

You don't have to be alone
Plant your smile in the ground
Shine it in the sun
Don't let it turn into a frown

You can always find another
They should be planted all around
They're so easily found
They sometimes come with sound

I just had a sweet memory of you
I'm smiling once again
This time for something new
This smiling thing never ends

It comes from the center of the world
Right there where Mary meets John
Close your eyes and picture that time
Put a loving memory in your mind
