You were my first love my greatest treasure
Sadly my world was shaken beyond measure
Silently like a thief in the night death came
Took your body  your soul it could not claim
I saw you suffering and fighting the pain
Disease killed its victim again and again
My tears collect like incense in a bowl
Tears have a habit of cleansing the soul
Like a rudderless boat in a boisterous sea
I’m not sure how things will end for me
Kind words of comfort from all around
Unconditional grace and love abound
I would like to conclude this eulogy this tribute
With the words of the minister so resolute
And I quote “Let us not wait for the storm to pass
But let us rather learn to dance in the rain” unquote
Fare thee well my forever love my life
