with me, through the canyon of love
me take you by the hand,
me lead you through some 32 years,
has always been my plan.
first approach, that day of days,
day we signed as one,
chose me to be your spouse
I'm glad, I didn't run.
brought with us, a very young lad
to me, as your son,
didn't matter to me, as you know
we still, all functioned as one.
we continue our journey, my darling
notice, along the way,
hardships, love and devotion
we still, found time to play.
can still, on the walls of the canyon
impressions, of the fun we had,
as a wife and a mother
me, in the role of a dad.
our son left our camp of love
be on his own, in this word, you and I,
together in a life, yet to be unfurled.
missed our son, right from the start
was hard to fill his void,
together, we managed somehow
changes in our lives, we employed.
lived hard and fast, to begin with
the signs in the canyon do show,
look again, my darling
speed, is beginning to slow.
here, we're ending our fifties
bodies, are entering that stage,
impressions, I see on the canyon walls
what we all , do know as age.
darling, let's not despair
trail of our canyon, is long,
continue to hold your hand
let nothing happen that's wrong.
here, or in some other world
me, you can always confide,
it been fun, my darling
our canyon, with you by my side.
and Arline Seager are my husbands parents.

was love born in Heaven and Blessed
is to them I owe my everlasting gratitude
raising the son that they did, My beloved husband,
this set was made exclusively by me for
page, do not take it. If you really want it,
me and I will see what I can do.
you for respecting my wishes.
