The Life That I Have

The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
Is yours

The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.

Beautiful
A beautiful poem which I read at my dear sister' funeral 8 years ago. It will be read at mine.
I read this poem with love to my lovely departed wife Anne truly says it all
14 weeks ago my darling husband died, this poem reflects what I feel even though the words reflect what he would say, but I too feel they appropriate.
I had this at my husband's funeral love it
