My sweet Granny Rose loves to waltz. The cancer has taken away her ability to waltz, and often even her ability to stand unassisted. So when my grandfather helps her stand up he wraps his arms around her and starts singing “Waltz across Texas” to her.
“When we dance together my world’s in disguise it’s a fairyland tale that come true
And when you look at me with those stars in your eyes
I could waltz across Texas with you
Waltz across Texas with you in my arms waltz across Texas with you
Like a storybook ending I’m lost in your charms
And I could waltz across Texas with you
My heartaches and troubles are just up and gone the moment that you come in view
And with your hand in mine dear I could dance on and on
And I could waltz across Texas with you”
Their love is still going strong after 53 years of marriage.
