There were times both happy and sad
Sometimes we were even mad
But you were always by my side
Buckling me in for the long ride.
We took a trip just you and I
With views that made me weep and sigh
And filled my heart with memories
As we looked out over the cold dark seas
Wondering about all the things to come
Leading us back to where we came from.
Then we hit a downward slope
I didn’t know how we could cope
I suffered through pain and being ill
But this year will be better still.
