It’s not been long since you’ve been gone,
I miss you more each day.
I try to live a normal life,
It can’t be done without my wife.

You were the better part of me,
You made our life complete.
The home you made for us to share,
Was a castle beautiful beyond compare.

The family you produced is great,
You’re proud of them, it shows.
They all love and cherish you,
More than we’ll ever know.

‘Tis the season that you love,
With snow and shopping for gifts and clothes,
We all join in with love to wish you,
Merry Christmas Marirose!
