Now I am going to think about this all day

I have a music box that was my grandma’s that plays the Anniversary Song. I have always loved the tune but had never heard the words.

Now my daughter loves real music boxes. I think it is the ting of metal when the teeth brush over the cylinder that draws her. The other night my husbands grandmother started singing to the music box and I cried because though I had never heard the words there were perfectly fitting for my grandparents.

Oh, how we danced on the night we were wed
We vowed our true love, though a word wasn’t said
The world was in bloom, there were stars in the skies
Except for the few that were there in your eyes

Thank you granny for wonderful addition to my memory and thank you daily inspiration

    I love that song too. I always thought it was written by Charlie Chaplin but a quick google says it was Al Jolson and Saul Chaplin
