Memories fill my lonely heart,
Of times before we had to part.
I miss you more as each day goes by,
So much I have a need to cry.

The tears that drop as I think of you,
Make me feel so close and new.
I feel your beauty, your many charms,
And long to feel your loving arms.

Remember how we did our best,
So we could always pass life’s tests.
And when we hit a bump or quirk,
We compromised and made things work.

And for our family this special treat,
We left a legacy that’s hard to beat.
A good clean life, so bright and cheerful
God is with us, so we’re never fearful.
