I’ve found one truth in all I do
It makes no sense here without you
My hopes and fears don’t change it much
I miss your voice, your kindly touch
The pleasant joys we two have shared
The happy days we’ve known and cared
To some it is the gentle grace
The glow of peace upon one’s face
I miss your wisdom and your calm
It kept me free and safe from harm
It’s slipped away into the mist
And left me here alone, unkissed.
I’ve learned once more to understand
That life proceeds at best unplanned
Yet leaves us with this last pleasure
Times relived in silent leisure!
