This would be our twenty-seventh anniversary today.
But six months ago God decided to take you away.
I remember the ceremony at Betty and Clayt’s.
I was really kind of nervous I could hardly wait.
It was all very simple, just five of us there.
I didn’t want a big wedding for I didn’t care.
Betty had a cake and a bottle of champagne too.
We went through the ceremony and both said “I do”.
We said we’d be together till death do us part.
But I want you to know that you’re still in my heart.
I still think about you, day in and day out.
You were my number one man, of that there’s no doubt.
It is so hard doing everything alone.
And then to an empty house have to come home.
I keep your picture out where I can see.
And first in my heart you will always be.
I tried to keep busy today so I wouldn’t grieve.
I’ve been running around like you wouldn’t believe.
It helps to keep busy, but it’s still not enough.
For living without you is so very, very tough.
Please know that I’ll love you till God calls on me.
Then we can live together for all eternity.
