shades of death

In my head I hear the words
Though I walk though the shadows of death

You art with me…
I hear the words
I feel your hand in mine
You are with me
You are with me
I can feel you
As if time has not past
I open my eyes to see yours
Your eyes are filled with tears
I can no longer produce any
But I desire not to
You are here with me
And have always been
By my side all these years
You have been there
When you stood there
And said till death do us part
You meant those words to me
As I have always meant them to you
Everything we said to each other
We lived by
Through thick and thin
As I lay here now
That only brings a smile to my face
As you stayed with me through me
Being thick in so many ways
As well as you being thick in so many ways as well
Through good times and bad
I lay here now
Again with a smile because of you
Because in our case it was
Opposites attract
Me with my quirks
You with yours
So many things others might have thought of as bad
We just us being in love
In love with every facet of each other
Through our fights
To our nights
Total opposites \
Completely in love
Though it might not have seemed so to others
Even our children
Our differences only brought us closer
Not further apart as some might see
You leaned on me
I leaned on you
Always there
Here with me now
As you and I hold one another’s hand.
Yes I might be walking though the valley of the shadow of death
But you are with me
If I could only tell you
To stop crying
You have made my life
And I have loved you every day
You hold my hand and you are with me
Thank you
My darling
You made promises to me that day
But you gave me so much more
I love you
Although I cannot say it I hope you know it
As I know you have always loved me
My eyes close
My hand looses its grip on yours
I feel you reach to squeeze my hand
Yes you have loved me
And I have loved you too….
