Missing You


The life we had was all we had
And the life we had was ours

The love we had was all we had
But the love we had was ours

The hope we had was all we had
And the hope we had was ours

The new home we had was all we had
But the home we had was ours

You’ve now been gone a year
But you know my dear I’m still
Yours, yours, yours.

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
