Specially written for my husband: John – From his wife: Elsie
I thought my life was over
I would never trust another human
At the age of eighteen
I had lost all respect for life
No longer wanted to live
All who I had trusted and loved
Where gone for good in my life.
That dark night I decided
I had had enough hurt in my life
So I locked the door to my heart
Threw away the key to life
Swallowed those pills
Somehow I had a second chance in life
I open my eyes and you came into my life.
You hold the key to my heart
Through thick and thin
That key you held still unlocks my heart
Our hearts live as one
Locked together forever
Fifty-six years of marriage
Never to be locked from each other ever.
Even when that day comes
When we make our way to heaven
Locked in each other arms
To rest in peace
With our hearts still locked together
With the key that lasts forever
Locked in my heart for you.
