93 - April 26, 2001

(c) April 26, 2001

Tomorrow is my birthday
I wonder what will be
should I toss a party
or keep it secret just for me

You see I've had so many
more than most you must agree
upon the cake the candles
must equal ninety-three

I've waited for the reaper
to take me through the door
since my dear wife left me
when I was eighty-four

Yes I have my children
they are blessings, yes it's true
but I miss my sweetheart
I wed at twenty-two

I wonder does she watch me
and wait patient for my love
perhaps the morn' will bring her
as my gift from up above
