Here beauty lies beneath a slab of stone
To rest in dreams and in sweet memory
And though I know her spirit has now flown,
I kneel and feel her presence next to me;
Within my mind she’ll stay forever young
And as so planned, live always by my side;
Together we will stay a precious one
And she will ever in my heart abide.
Scrived rock stays mute as tears spill down like rain,
Fond thoughts do warm, yet earth remains so cold;
I bow my head, I cannot stand the pain;
If but dear god would take me to his fold.
How can I face the world without her love?
Where lies the mercy of the one above?
