Wife in Heaven
Although you sleep in Heaven now
You’re not that far away
My heart is full of memories
And you’re with me every day
You lived your life with meaning
And with a smile upon your face
A world that was full of happiness
Is now an empty place
People say that only time
Will heal a broken heart
But just like me and you
It has been torn apart
In know you are at peace now
And in a place where you are free
Meet me at the Pearly Gates
When Heaven calls for me.
– From your loving husband, all the family and grandchildren.
