Remember Me Remember me The one that created a home for you Your own private retreat Allowing you to escape the harsh realities of your world A sanctuary filled with laughter and peace Orderly and clean Fit for a Warrior King Remember me The one that stood by you, supported whatever you would do Validated the man you were created to be Took pleasure in seeing you lead with dignity and pride Recognized the depth of wisdom and knowledge you held inside Always encouraging you to soar To reach for the places you only dreamed of before Remember me The one that massaged all your tension and stress away Your freshly bathed body, wet, drenched in scented oils Thought you were on Cloud Nine every other day Then in the flickering flames of candlelight I listened to your hopes and embraced your dreams While not losing sight of my own Remember me The one that loved you deeply My unconditional love given to you So freely and completely Our souls blending together as one heartbeat Like the beauty of the sunset Where sea and sky meet Remember me The one that always honored and respected you No silly games, no tricks, no child's play Only blessings filled your day Before you go Stop at the door Take some time Reflect in your mind And consider your wife, The awesome treasure you will leave behind
