How Young We Were

My wife’s final day she lost the bout

At the hospital I collapsed my legs gave out

 

They took me into the emergency

Nothing wrong they said with me

 

They couldn’t see my heartache

They couldn’t feel my heartbreak

 

At night when I go to bed

I twist and turn with thoughts in my head

 

Some nights to sleep is hard for me

Thinking of my wife I wish I could see

 

On my neck is my wife’s wedding band

I clutch it tightly in my hand

 

My body is tired and with some pain

Why do I go on what’s to gain

 

I wish I new the end to my life

I miss so much not being with my wife

 

I look at pictures how young we were

That’s how I wish to be again with her
