~The Day She Left~
We watched her suffer, day by day; It caused us bitter grief;
To see her slowly pine away; And could not give relief.
Her weary hours and days of pain; Her troubled nights are past;
And in our aching hearts we know; She has found sweet rest at last.
'Tis sweet to know we will meet again; Where parting is no more;
And my dear wife I loved so well; Has only gone before.
God knows how much I miss her. He counts the tears I shed;
And whispers, "Hush, she only sleeps; Your wife is not dead."
Someday, some time, my years shall see; the face I loved so well.
Someday, some time, her hand I'll clasp; And never say farewell.
My love always, Allen
