Living Pearls


Donate to Marie Curie Cancer Care

I bless the day that we were wed
So many years ago
You made my life so wonderful
I always loved you so.

Four children blooming one by one
Alternate boys and girls
They comfort me now you are gone
You left me living pearls.

Now I must live my life again
Not having you around
And bear this all-consuming pain
Until I’m Heaven bound.

I’ll see you waiting at “The Gate”
Your arms will open wide
We’ll be together once again
As you fold me inside.
