Lyrics

It was early Sunday morning one month to the day
Whitecaps lapped the shoreline at her cottage by the bay
Sorting through her treasures, bequests to family
Mama found a jewel box grandma marked for me

She sent greetings
Special treasures left to me
Greetings from an angel I couldn't see
Every time I raise the lid
I feel her love's alive
Sending me a gentle sign
Greetings not goodbyes

Marked for each occasion with love notes set aside
I sifted through my future with grandma as my Guide
A locket for my birthday, a charm for sweet sixteen
Lacy gloves for prom night, she'd remembered everything

She sent greetings
Special treasures left to me
Greetings from an angel I couldn't see
Every time I raise the lid
I feel her love's alive
Sending me her gentle signs
Greetings not goodbyes

I never thought she'd miss my wedding day
But now I know that she'll be here in her own way

She sent greetings
Special treasures left to me
Greetings she's my angel watching me
Every time I raise the lid
I know her love's alive
Blowing me a gentle kiss
Greetings not goodbyes
