'Goodnight' my darling he whispered, as he perched himself on the bed,
'I was thinking of you today, you know, about the day we wed.
You looked so pure and perfect, like a cherub upon a cloud,
Approaching me from down the isle. you made me feel so proud.
It's been forty years since that day, everyday spent with you,
And now I sit here alone, i dont know what to do.
I played your favourite song today and sat there on your chair,
I closed my eyes and for a while I saw you standing there.
But you wasn't weak and tired, nor sick or in pain,
No, you were standing in your wedding dress fit and healthy again.
You tried to tell me something, but I could only hear the song,
