`Jim, Who will love me above all? Who will hold me dear? Who will dream about me? Your friend, your wife, your love. Who will cherish my kisses, My hopes and dreams to share, Who will walk beside me, On into the autumn years of life. Who will stand beside me, Each cry of mine to hear, Who will wipe away my tears, When the pain's to much to bear. Good-bye my love, my heart, God grant you sweet repose and through whatever else fate may cast our way, I know we'll meet again.`
