In loving memory of my husband, Edward Beckett, who died 12 years ago, October 23.|
To your grave I travel, flowers I place with care.
But no one knows the heartache,
As I turn and leave you there.
To walk into that valley, where the sun shall never set,
He knew that I would remember, and never would forget.
I think of you in silence, no one can see me weep,
But many tears I shed, when others are asleep.
Always a beautiful memory, often a silent tear,
Always a secret longing, wishing you were here.
If teardrops could build a stairway,
And my heart could lead the way,
I would climb the stairs to Heaven,
Just to be with you today. Missing and loving you always,
Your Wife Elsie and Family
