You would have been 83 today.
Your health would'nt have allowed you to enjoy another year
Your family would have been no closer
Your quality of life would not have improved
You would have had another year to endure your pain
Wasn't it better that you went quickly without regret?
I now can remember just the happier times we had
Before you embarked on your downward spiral into misery
Those happier days and years will be my only memories now
