Each morning starts with thoughts of you,
Remembering things you’d say and do.
Your smile is always there for me,
I’m honored dear to say the least.

You gave me joy at every turn,
You made the fires within me burn.
It’s tough for us to be apart.
It almost tears my heart apart.

Your children were your pride and joys.
I thank you for those girls and boys.
You’re with me in the cloudless skies,
You’re with me when I close my eyes.
