She has a look all of her own
so beautiful in her flannel gown.
Wish I were with her to walk her home,
and pick her up when she's feeling
down.
I watch her lovliness everyday
sadly from my humble grave
I wished she could see me standing here
for today is our special day
It is the day of our anniversary.
I can't help to think, she's forgoten me.
My  grave now a cold, and desolate place
she doesn't visit anymore
Have I already been replaced
Have I lost the love of lenore?
I remember the day, like it was yesterday.
Yea, I remember it well.
It was the day I passed away,
her heart broke I could tell.
And when it came time to bury me
her tears saturated with pain.
I saw that sadness in the lines
upon her face,
and to know it was over
our love would  no longer
be the same.
Years have passed since then
my flowers withered away
weeds taken over my headstone
the birds no longer sing, nor play.
So with this I take to my grave
as her token.
My bestilled heart lies soiled,
and broken.
With this I deplore...
I've lost the love of my sweet lenore.
