    The leaves have fallen from the trees
    And summer days are gone.
    Lingering twilight in the chilling breeze
    And the end of the robin's song.

    All of my life I searched for you
    Not knowing it until that day
    When you appeared out of the blue
    After almost a lifetime away.

    Somehow we knew that time would fly
    And yet we embraced our love.
    We had time to laugh and sometimes cry
    And we thanked our Father above.

    We now had hope for each new day
    And each other to comfort at night.
    You always had something tender to say
    And made everything seem all right.

    When sickness came and would not leave
    With courage I watched you fight.
    We prayed each day and tried to believe
    That somehow it would be all right.

    But time was slipping away...
    Faster each day, it seemed.
    With dignity and grace you continued to pray
    And at night, of Heaven, we dreamed.

    Heaven is where you are, its true,
    Above the storm clouds and rain,
    Where the sky is so eternally blue
    And there is no more sickness or pain.

    Time is passing still faster each day
    And at night I miss holding your hand,
    But I remember you taught me to pray
    And to believe in the Promised Land.

    The trees will be dressed in leaves so new
    And summer days will re-appear.
    Twilight will become the eternal blue
    And the robin will sing so clear.

    It is a great comfort to know that you
    Are not really so far away,
    And you will appear out of the blue,
    After almost a lifetime away.
     
  2. Gawd (sniff) that is SOOOOOooo beautiful.
    Right now, and since this morning,
    there has been a robin, vigil keeping, wistfully weeping
    (I can only imagine, for it sounds so mournful),
    for a lost one.
    She won't stop. I've seen her on the rooftop.
    I know her sound. I know how profound it is.
    And your words echo it...
