See the tree how big its grown
But friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it was just a twig
The first snow came and she ran out
To brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
Came running in all excited
Slipped and almost hurt herself and I laughed till I cried

She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all christmas night two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from working late cause I would know
That shed been sittin there and cryin'
Over some sad and silly late late show

And Honey I miss you and I'm being good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could
She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad
But what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me
And hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly
And caught her crying needlessly in the middle of the day
And it was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing she went away

And Honey I miss you and I'm being good
And I'd love to be with you if only I could
One day when I wasn't home
When she was there and all alone the angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey
And I wake up nights and call her name
Yes now my life's an empty stage
Where Honey lived and Honey played and love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed that Honey loved

And see the tree how big its grown
But friend it hasn't been too long it wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it was just a twig...
