A Second Chance

A Second Chance

For so many years I had my wife
Now it’s sadness that fills my life

I miss that time we would caress 
I miss the touch of tenderness

I talk to my wife every day  
Love is one of the words I say

I loved to smell my wife’s hair
I wish I had a lock of it here 

Your gone and out of sight
To heaven you will be my shining light 

At the end of my life
I will again be with my wife

In heaven again my wife and me
A second chance it will be
