I walk to that place filled with memories
Where me and him filled jars with bees
Shake them up, lift the lid, and flee
Yes, seven year olds at the hollow tree
Our high school years show up as a surprise
Just like how he showed up and looked me in the eyes
Said “I love you” and gave me a kiss
These memories at the hollow tree I surely miss
These four years come and go
Just like how that question came as an overflow
Got down on one knee and gave me the ring
Yes, at the hollow tree is where wedding bells would sing
That day came in a blink of an eye
The flowing white dress made my mom cry
Walking down that aisle smiling at the groom
These memories at the hollow tree surely bloom
As years pass, our love grew
Started a family, taught them what they knew
Then his time ended, but our love isn’t gone
Resting in peace at the hollow tree, our love lives on
