In his final hour she held his feeble hand.
She said, "He was an attractive man.
"On our first date, we went to Dairy Queen.
After one root-beer float I knew, he was the man of my dreams."
She said, "On the second date, he kissed my cheek.
My knees melted, I could barely speak.
Then he read me a letter that said, "Mom, I've found my wife."
And asked me if he should mail it, and be his for life."
It's a longing, that grows with aging
Ama....zing, Amazing Love
She said, "That night, 50 years ago, I said yes.
Then on my forehead and lips he gave me a kiss.
But tonight, he doesn't remember my name
But oh, how I love him, just the same."
I turned to her and said, his legacy will live on
For I'll be there for you, when Dad has passed on
