                                                                               LIFE WITHOUT YOU

                                                                         The Light that shone was so shiny and bright.

                                                                   The Light that shone flickered like a candle in the night.

                                                                           The Light that shone guided me on my flight. 

                                                                                 That Light was my Light, so I had to go on.

                                                                                         The Light did not steer me wrong.

                                                                                       but guided me on to my heavenly home.                                     

                                                                                                            Love Always
