Tears In Our Eyes

With tears in our eyes
And love in our hearts,
We said our good-byes
And made a new start.

For, two homes were broken
And two little friends
Would never be quite like
They could have been.

Summers at Grandma's...
Sweet easy days -
When Daddies came home
Every evenin' to play.

Grandpa and fishin'
And love did abound.
But we had to go back
With the leaves turnin' brown.

For the judge never asked us
How WE felt that day -
And we were so little
We hardly could say.

So we hugged as we parted
And said our good-byes.
With love in our hearts
And tears in our eyes.
