If I Bring You Flowers

If I bring you flowers in the springtime?
Will you promise to be mine forever?
If I bring you flowers in the springtime?
Will you promise to leave me never?

Our world is green and growing fast.
Like the love I have for you.
We are only now building our past.
Will our love be enough to see us through?

If I bring you flowers with the summer sun?
Will you love me forever more?
If I bring you flowers with the summer sun?
Will you always be there for me to adore?

Our children are growing and we are strong.
Our love is growing too.
The life we are living seems on and on.
But deep within my heart, I will always find you.

If I bring you flowers when the leaves begin to fall?
Will you promise that your love will never fade away?
If I bring you flowers when the leaves begin to fall?
Will you promise to give your love to me each and every day?

Our children have left us here all alone.
Our world seems much too quiet and still.
But as long as I can hold you in my arms as my own.
I know I'll always find a passionate thrill.

If I bring you flowers in the wintertime?
Will you promise that your love will never ever die?
If I bring you flowers in the wintertime?
Will you always be there with your sweet loving smile?

Our lives have past before our eyes.
Our time grows short this much we know.
Although we must our love will never die.
See our grandchildren playing in the snow.
