A Year Ago Today

print

It still grieves me when I wander
To the grave not far away
Where we laid my little darling
Just a year ago today

It broke my heart so when she left
But she did not go alone
The greatest part of me went with her
The day the savior called her home

As I looked back across my life time
As I journey on and on
I bless the days that I had with her
And I leave the rest to God

In a grave so dark and lonely
Neath the cold and silent clay
There we laid my little darling
Just a year ago today
