Karen’s Song

I don’t know what I will do
to carry on dear
I guess I’ll think about you
almost every minute all day long
I’ll think about our happy times
and things you used to say
I’ll remember favorite places
as the thoughts won’t go away
I’ll remember holding you tight
and think about you
darling all the night
I’ll remember how you loved me
until the pain brings on the tears
And I’ll cry myself to sleep each night
until another day appears
Then I’ll start all over
just trying to get through
I’ll pray all the time dear
this just can’t be true
For there has never been an angel
quite as sweet as you
We all seem to understand
our time here isn’t long
But like so many others
sometimes we didn’t get along
Now after almost 50 years
our time together is gone
I’d give a million dollars
to change what I’ve done wrong
I don’t know how I found
the sweetest girl with all the class
I know God sent you for me
but don’t why He called you back
I guess they need you
to show the angels how to act.
