1.1.1 Let Me Count

***This song is written for my grandparents. It's not one of my better works, but it still holds a special place in my heart. :)

I used to take you for granted

I thought childhood was a game

But now I've grown to see where I was wrong

Some day you may not be here for me to call your name.

I was never your favorite

And I know I'm never hated

How do I love you?

Let me count the many days.

In you I always trusted, never thinking twice

And I know you'll always be near

Even though the miles keep us apart

And when I need some comfort

Your voice I want to hear

I was never your favorite

You know I know I'm never hated

How do I love you?

Let me count the many ways.

No matter what you'll be there

Even if only in my mind

I know you'll find me when I'm lost

You will never leave me far behind.

I'll never be your favorite (not when you don't have one)

I'll never be hated (you only know love)

How do I love you?

Let me count.
