Life Goes On
Hand-in-hand they stood side by side
by Terry Donovan
As together silent tears they cried,
Comfort in each other found
As the coffin dropped into the ground.
A wife, a mother, taken away,
A last farewell on this sad day.
They stood there, hearts and minds as one,
Step-father he and he step-son.
No greater loss had either known,
No more important seed unsown,
Yet for an instant he was glad
To hear the words 'Let's go home, dad'
