You don’t forget the little things like sharin’ the remote

Kissing me good morning and helping with my coat

You never bring me flowers, so I knew they were earned

Each petal holds a memory of the little things I’m missin’

Waffles Sunday morning, whiskers tickling my chin,     
Emi                                          B mi             C D                     G     D C G D C
Please, Lord, keep him safe, watch over him, and my dried roses

   G                                                           C
We made the choice together, you looked proud when you left
    G                                                                 D
You said take care of things at home; Well, I’ve tried to do my best

I’ll do my part to show support each day that you’re gone
D                  C                   D                          G
I’ll tie a yellow ribbon, fly our flag, and sing this song


e mi                    D                        
Smilin’ eyes from in the photographs
C                              D                 G     
Remembering the music of our laughter
e mi                                      D               
I’m glad I kept those roses savin’ the little things
C                          D
’Cause I want my happy ever after


C                         D   E mi  D/E  C                      D                       G          
Lord, keep him safe                   ‘cause I want more than dried roses
