It seems it was only yesterday that we first met
Amidst the turbulent years of our courtship time
When the enemies were lurking all around and set
To pounce upon us with bullets humming rhyme.
Here I am O Lord!
With all my weakness, my sins,
If unknowingly I committed them
Dear Lord, Your forgiveness I implore.
Vividly I remember
When he gave the rosary to me
The night was late in a bleak December
His tears profusely, freely flowing.
