This morning as the sun arose,
I thought of my lovely Marirose.
The longing of my lonely heart,
Made my day so hard to start.

Then I thought about other times,
When we were young and things were fine.
We were in love, we really cared,
As we lived our life, our love was shared.

We kept pretty busy, building our nest,
And working together we each did our best.
Each sharing the load, when skies were gray,
To make our lives better, we worked night and day.

Marirose was a wonderful partner and wife,
God was there with us through troubles and strife.
He held us tightly in His loving arms,
Showered us with blessings and kept us from harm.
