Partings come and hearts are broken,
Loved ones go with words unspoken,
Deep in our hearts there's a memory kept,
For a husband and father we'll never forget.
Some day I hope to meet you,
Some day, I know not when,
To clasp your hand in a better land,
Never to part again.
Lonely is my home without you,
Life to me is not the same,
All this world would be like Heaven,
Just to have you back again.
In quiet thoughts I live again,
The days that used to be,
How rich in kindness, love and care,
How dear you were to me.
I've lost my life's companion,
A life linked with my own,
You're still mine to remember,
A husband proud to own.
Many a tear I've shed since I lost you,
Many more will continue to fall,
You took my happiness with you,
The happiest hours of all.
Thus shall I walk with you
And keep the bond that love doth give,
Knowing that remembrance, though
Shall reach you wherever you live.
You were a wife in a million,
Why did you have to go,
You meant the world to me,
I really loved you so,
If I had one choice today
My choice would not be hard,
I'd wish that I could have you here,
To give you a birthday card.
