Beloved Wife

Beloved Wife

You were the love
for certain of my life
You were simply my beloved wife
I don't how for certain
How I'll live my life
Now alone without my beloved wife
My beloved wife
I can't believe
I've lost the very best of me

You were the love
For certain of my life
You were simply my beloved wife
I don't know for certain
How I'll live my life
Now alone without my beloved wife
My beloved wife
I can't believe
I've lost the very best of me

You were the love
For certain of my life
For fifty years simply my beloved wife
With another love I'll never lie again
It's you I can't deny
It's you I can't defy
A depth so deep
Into my grief
Without my beloved soul
I renounce my life
As my right
Now alone without my beloved wife
My beloved wife

My beloved wife
My love is gone she suffered long
In hours of pain
My love is gone would it be wrong
If I should surrender
All the joy in my life
Go with her tonight

My love is gone she suffered long
In hours of pain
My love is gone would it be wrong
If I should surrender
All the joy in my life
Go with her tonight
