On April 7th we had a small wedding

It was a life with you I was getting

50 years ago you became my wife

I said I do for the rest of my life

In all our years I never cried

I do it now since you died

At night is the loneliness

All the time is the emptiness

I wanted to get a new engagement ring for you

Maybe even repeat the words, I do

The guilt I felt because of no goodbye

At the same time I also wanted to die

I loved you so many years of my life

I will always love you as my wife

I’m still finding things hard to do

These were easy things for you

Until again it’s you and me

Happy 50th anniversary
