I walked down that road one last time;
I only wanted to bask in the joy that had been mine;
as we had walked down this road so many time before.
But the memories into my heart only tore
and the tears began to fall
for now I cannot see you are all.
You had carried on your back a load, a newborn baby girl
and a darling son running joyfully around like a little squirrel.
The pain in my heart will never end
for time with you I can never again spend.
Your laughter, your sweet voice and all the great times we enjoyed
are now just a heart-breaking memory that I must avoid.
As I sadly go back up this road alone
I can only cry and moan.
I will carry you in my heart
until the day I also depart.
Until then, my darling daughter. wait
for me to arrive at the gate.
May I then be blessed to again hear you say, I love you.
For I love you and God’s word is true.
We will see each other again in a better life
where we will be free from all strife.
Until then, Rest in peace. God be with you till we meet again.
To My Rhonda, with love
