is necessary before you can meet again. And

is certain for those who are friends.

24 Vintage And Shabby Chic Thanksgiving Décor Ideas - "Vintage and shabby chic today are very popular in décor because they bring the charm of the old times and kind of coziness. That’s why I think that decorating for Thanksgiving in these styles is a good idea: it allows to combine the antique charm and a traditional cozy and warm holiday. Take some vintage tablecloth, adorable doilies and antique napkin rings; add flowers in a pumpkin vase and silver tableware – and your Thanksgiving table setting is ready! Find some old-fashioned shabby furniture to decorate your dining room and make a beautiful decoupage pumpkin to create the atmosphere you need. Get inspired!"

It's Not for Me to Say

Lyrics by Al Stillman (26 June 1906 – 1979); Music by Robert Allen (05 Feb 1927 - 01 Oct 2000)

Recorded by Johnny Mathis (b. 30 Sept 1935), 1957

It's not for me to say you love me
It's not for me to say you'll always care
Oh, but here for the moment I can hold you fast
And press your lips to mine
And dream that love will last

As far as I can see this is heaven
And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say

And speaking just for me, it's ours to share
Perhaps the glow of love will grow with every passing day
Or we may never meet again
But then, it's not for me to say
