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 unspoken,
Shall reach you wherever you live.
