Always took this special path
Our hearts were so entwined
Love we shared a special gift
Life's joy and peace aligned

Place we walked is paved in gold
Steps we made still there
Within my heart this memory
This love you can't compare

Arm that held me closely
It reaches to this day
Treasured times all gathered
Drenched in life's essay

Presence always with me
That blesses me with peace
Icon of my childhood
My debts to him increase

Reflection of the waters
The pool within my eyes
Smile so broad and tender
The wisdom soft and wise

Never will he leave me
I'll never let him go
In my life he's with me
He casts a long shadow.
