Next to Her

In an instant and a quick flash
There was a crash near Calabash;
Won't see the one I love anymore;
Into my heart, a big hole it tore.

She isn't around and her can't hear;
To heaven has gone and did disappear;
No longer will remain in my sight;
Never will forget that terrible night.

On the news a message I just saw;
She died with my future mother in law
And father who with a friend had made
On front porch will sitting in the shade.

Her and whole family had been killed;
Was this by gracious God what He willed;
If only I could bring them all back;
I now am weary and have to hit the sack.

In my dreams every night, she appeared 
And finally as my twilight had neared
A question to my mind did recently occur;
Will you have me buried next to her?
