My husband, my lover, he was brave, he was fair,
And we journeyed together, and each memory we’d share.
Then he took his hand from me, when we had to part,
But I know that he’s with me, for he’s here in my heart.
Written by Esther Rantzen
in memory of her husband Desmond
and sung by her,
to the tune of the Irish folk song
She Moved Through The Fair,
when interviewed by Michael Parkinson
