Why me?


As darkness holds us in its arms

And peace fills the room.

I listen and look

As you sleep beside me


I hold you close, your head against my chest

And I ask…Why me?

Why did you choose me?

With your beauty and charm

The world was yours and yet

You chose me.

Thank you God

For giving me the best

My friend, my love, my wife

My Boo…

Why me?

I’ll never understand,

But my heart will rejoice for ever!
