Nancy’s Kisses

  Joan Clifton Costner


I’m going through my mem’ries 

Picking out the best 

The ones that long brought pleasure

To this life that God has blest.


One that blest me Oh, so much

I’m still thankful for today

Was Nancy with her kisses and

Her sweet and loving ways.


For in my family, sure, we kissed,

Goodnight and all goodbyes,

But Nancy kissed hello with blessings

Higher than the sky!


She’d greet on Sunday morning

With a hug and sweetest kiss 

There was not a single one that

Nancy’s lips would miss!


She said, “You’re sweet as honey 

It just drips with every word!

No wonder the kids love their teacher!”

And I blushed with every word.


Slowly I began to be more

Liberal in my ways 

And gave a kiss to certain ones

To brighten up their day.


A long time now since Nancy felt

Our kisses of goodbye.

I know she’s kissing others in

The new church...flyin’ high!


I go now to the manor where

The bravest heroes live 

They come to hear an old singer,

And for the kisses that I give.


I owe it all to Nancy!

And I kiss them ~ every one!

Then we sing songs of Jesus and

Have lots of Godly fun.


You never know how a tender touch

Can brighten up a day....

And if you pucker up your lips 

A kiss is just a swish away!
