Mother And Daddy Are Gone

print

The night Mother died it broke my Daddy’s heart
In anguish he bowed his gray head
And the pitiful way he kept calling her name
I can’t believe my angel is dead

The sparkle that once shined in my Daddy’s eyes
And the spring he once had in his walk
Was replaced with a far away look on his face
As often of my sweet Mother we’d talk

Then the night finally came I was called to his side
On his face was a heavenly smile
Then he reached for my hand and said Son with a smile
In heaven I’ll see our sweet angel tonight
