We walked this land,
Hand and hand,
Side by side,
Always loyal and true.
The first time we ever looked into each other's eyes, and wrapped our hands .
I lost myself in your love and dreamed with you on our path to forever.
Now that our path was cut to short in this life,
My days and nights are now filled with tears in my eyes.
Rest in peace in the highest heavens above, my most beautiful wife.
There will never be another like you.
