A sweet poem from Larry to Mavis
I'm Only a Whisper Away
I'm only a whisper away
Come dry your tears, and smile again, love
Remember the good times we've known.
Cherish the joy we discovered.
Love that was planted and grown
Your road may seem lonely ahead.
And distant horizons look grey.
You wont be walking alone dear.
I'm only a whisper away.
