"Once Upon a Time" as written by and William King Ross....
Once upon a time you would travel
A hundred miles with a smile
Just to be by my side
Now you would not make
The journey across a room

And where we once watched sunsets
We now watch television in silence

Of all the things that I will miss
Oh, your shy laugh, your tender kiss
The thing that I will miss the most
Is you holding my hand

Although parting is such sour sorrow
I agree that we’ll be
Happier apart
For you no longer smile at me
As once upon a time you did

Where we gazed at the Milky Way
We now gaze at the floor in silence

Of all the things that I will miss
Oh, your shy laugh, your tender kiss
The thing that I will miss the most
Is you holding my hand

Wherever you go
Take my love with you
