We’ve been together for sixty six years,
Shared a lot of smiles and a lot of tears,
Some were happy, some were sad,
Marirose, the best friend I’ve ever had.

She would always do her part,
Her smile could melt the coldest heart,
She’s now an angel with wings of white,
Watching over us by day and night.

You’ll see her in the babbling brook,
And every place you choose to look,
With bright blue eyes and coal black hair,
She’s in God’s beauties everywhere.
