My Lovey, You went first and I remain to walk the road alone. I'll live in memories garden, dear, with happy days we've known. In spring I'll wait for roses red, when fade the lilacs blue. In early fall when brown leaves fall, I'll catch a glimpse of you. You went first and I remain, one thing I'll have to do. Walk slowly down that long, long path, for soon I'll follow you. Loving Husband, Dale.
