Forever, My Love

I see the wordless question in your eyes
As I embrace you in your final days.
My love, please rest in peace and realize
Iíll hold you deep within my heart always.
For nothing can erase the years we knew,
As hand in hand we sojourned through this life;
My heart, my very soul belongs to you,
And I could never be anotherís wife.

Before you slip into the Great Divide,
My dearest one, I'd like for you to know
I'll keep a faithful vigil by your side,
And long to travel with you when you go.

Oh love, my life, forever I will care,
On earth and also when I join you There.
