    On the front porch
    In my rocking chair
    In my sunset
    with silver hair

    I'll remember a time beyond compare

    and you'll be there

    When my weary soul
    and body rests
    I'll fold my arms
    across my breasts

    I'll remember who loved me best

    and you'll be there

    When my eyes
    no longer see
    my vision of you
    will always 'be'

    I'll remember a place, my heart was free

    and you'll be there

    And when I die
    and when I'm gone
    our time of love
    will linger on

    for in each verse, of every poem

    will find 'you' there...
