Helen's Daughter

Helen’s Daughter
By Joeysguy

Helen, Since your daughter is back with you

This writing is long overdue

When your daughter became my wife

I also became her protector in life

She developed heart problems like you

And died because of it too

I feel I failed to keep her alive

I’m sorry that she didn’t survive

Lots of my memories bring out my tears

But I wouldn’t trade away any of those years

Being with her on that very last day

That’s the time I wish I could trade away

Will you watch over her with care

Hold on to her till the day that I get there

She has given me some special days

With balloons and candles I show some loving ways

I never new how empty I could be

Until your daughter passed and left me

I was a husband to my wife

Now a widower for the rest of my life





Could-a, Would-a, Should-a

Could-a, Would-a, Should-a
By joeys guy

These are words that some people would say

These are words in someone’s thoughts everyday

Could-a, Would-a, Should-a in someone’s mind

These are words that can be very unkind

Especially if we lose a loved one from our life

These words were unkind to me when I lost my wife

I have asked myself, was there more I could-a done

Was there anything more I should-a done

These are words that can tear us apart

Letting them into our mind and heart

Thinking of arguments, I should-a gave in

Why did I always try to win

At that last moment I should-a held her so very tight

So that the Angels would-a had a tough fight

People say there was nothing I could-a done

It’s what my wife should-a done
