Whisper “I love you” to a butterfly,
And it will fly to heaven to deliver your message.
I walked as long as I could
“I walked with you as long as I could.
Our years were many, our days were good.
I watched you fade slowly day by day;
My heart wept tears, I hid them away.
I could not show you weakness or grief.
I gave you strength and staunch belief.
God took your hand and we had to part.
He eased your pain, but broke my heart.
I wanted you with me for a few more years.
God knew how I felt, but he knew best.
He took you home so you could rest.
Life goes on, I know it’s true.
But it’s not the same since I lost you.
Your beautiful memories I will treasure forever,
Of the happy days when we were together.
With an aching heart I whisper low,
I love you and miss you so.”
