A Lovely Kind of Day

It was a lovely kind of happy
     Joyous melancholy day;
Friends and family gathered all
     From near and far away.

We hugged and smiled, laughed and cried
     Raised glasses for a toast;
Remembering sweet moments past
     And people we loved most.

We talked for hours, ate good food
     And mourned how fast time flies;
Excited we could be together,
     Knowing soon there'd be good-byes.

And as the night came to a close
     We lingered by the door;
This precious time was ending,
     Though our hearts still yearned for more.

It was a lovely kind of happy
      Joyous melancholy day;
And if the day could last forever,
      Forever's where we'd stay.
