I thought of you today
I wondered if you’d like
The gift I chose for you
So very long ago

I thought of you today
I miss your cheeky grin
I miss the way you’d give
Then do without yourself

I thought of you today
So many trips we took
Exploring hidden paths
We’d never gone before

I thought of you today
Your gift sits in my drawer
The one you were too ill
To see or care about

I thought of you today
As every day I do
And wishing you were here
To give your gift to you
