CAN YOU HEAR ME, SWEETHEART?
Can you hear me sweetheart as I lie here in the mud
The birds so sweetly singing as they wander in my blood
All around me smoke is rising and I fear I shall not see
Golden hair upon my chest again, as you snuggle close to me.
Weep not for what we will not have, but please, my love, rejoice
I would not want your tears to fall or hear quivers in your voice.
Sing to me my darling, it will help to ease my pain
Call to me, my loved one, let me hear you once again.
Soft kisses to our baby girl, may she grow to be like you
Please tell her Daddy loves her, and loves her Mummy too.
Take my heart within you, as you live for you and me
Do not dwell in sadness for what can never be.
Know that I will always love you, wherever you may go
Rejoice for we had one year of happiness, and we loved each other so.

The first two lines were from a poem by my friend, Frank Cassidy...
I wrote the rest without ever having read his entire poem.
