I gaze at you lying,
In a coffin edged with gold,
And I look at the letter,
That you loosely hold.
I placed that precious letter,
In your cold and lifeless hand,
And asked you to deliver it,
When you reached that Heavenly Land.
I made an honest entry,
Of how I felt, and still feel,
Then left it in your possession,
After I'd kissed it with a loving seal.
Please deliver this letter to my dear and beautiful mother,
And don't forget to tell her,
How much I miss and love her.
Tell her I miss her,
And wish she was here,
So I could tell her I adore her,
And then hold her near.
