My Wife My Prize

MY WIFE MY PRIZE 

I asked my girl to be my wife
To be mine the rest of our life

Her father gave away the bride
Her mother was happy but cried 

I took the oath of marriage that day
To love her in every way 

On our wedding day I said I do
Forever I want to be with you

Not many men love the same wife
I did for more than half our life

For over 50 years we were together
She’s gone but I’ll be her guy forever   

Looking at my wife and into her eyes
What I see is my wife my prize

With all the love I had for my wife
It hurts that she was taken out of my life

I have to believe in an afterlife
A place where I can rejoin my wife

I want to believe so much
To again see and feel her touch
