Our Last Goodbye

Here’s a bunch of flowers for you, my darling

Though you’re critically ill, you show no fear

You stare death in the face courageously

I’ll stay by your side until they lay you to rest

And I’ll put a wreath of red roses on your grave


The breath of life will soon leave your body

Sadly, you may not be with us tomorrow

Your loved ones weep over you in the room,

But not a drop of tear falls from your eyes

I’ll miss you and I won’t hold back my tears


It’s so sad to lose the only woman I love dearly

You’re my loving wife and my true friend

We vowed not to part until the day we die

Now we must say our last goodbye, my darling

I’ll kiss you before you take your last breath
