Our Best to You

Our best to you
May your dreams come true
May old father time
Never be unkind
And through the years
Save your smiles and your tears
They're just souvenirs
They'll make music in your heart
Remember this
Each new day is a kiss
Sent from up above
With an angel's love
So here's to you
May your skies be blue
And your love blessed
That's our best to you.
Isham Jones and Gene Willaden (1942)

"Our Best to You" was one of my grandparents' love songs. A shadow of a memory of them singing it as a duet at their 50th anniversary lingers. The engraved motto reminded me of their blessing and an Internet search filled in the lyrics and tune, if not their voices.

  1. What a beautiful sentiment in the song. I'm going to see if I can find the tune that goes with it; I would love to hear it sung.
