In Loving Memory of a Very Special Husband
When God was making husbands as far as I can see, He made a special soulmate
especially for me, he made a perfect gentleman, compassionate and kind, With more
love and affection than you could ever wish to find, He gave my darling husband a
heart of solid gold, He gave me wonderful memories only my heart can hold, He was
someone I could talk to that no one can replace, He was someone I could laugh with
till tears ran down my face, Next time we meet will be at heavens door, When I see
you standing there I won’t cry anymore, I will put my arms around you and kiss your
smiling face, Then the pieces of my broken heart will fall back into place.
Miss you so much,
