Together Forever

As the wife and I lie in bed,

We talk about all the wonderful things that pass through our head.

After our chat, we lay back for a little while

And fall asleep with a loving smile.

When I awake, I look at my wife and say —

“While I was asleep I missed you dear.”

She looks at me with those big brown eyes and says —

“I have had that thought for many a year.”

We know the day is going to come

When only one of us will awake.

It will be a sad day —

When one of us will have to attend the other one’s wake.

That’s not the end of the story, believe me —

For when we both pass on we’ll be together forever —

For eternity.

In memory of those who have lost a spouse.

Capt. James F. Parisi
