A Perfect Love
The love of my life, my companion, my husband
Has gone home to heaven, he took that great flight.
God blessed me with him, when we were both young
So full of life, alive and high-strung.
We saw much sunshine; we went through much rain
Good times and bad times, laughter and pain.
Sometimes we laughed, and sometimes we cried
But what ever we went through, I stayed by his side.
He always loved me, no doubt in my mind
Caring, compassionate, forgiving and kind.
Your Loving Wife, Betty
