A LIGHT WENT OUT






A LIGHT WENT OUT


It was another sad day for me
I had to say goodbye to someone you see
This is the part of my job that I detest
When I see the people I care for laid to rest.



Mary was a kind and gentle soul
Never to be a burden was her goal,
She loved to sit and have a little chat
About nothing special just this and that.



My job with Mary was an easy one
No sooner started then it was done,
She`d tell me then to be on my way
So I could get to others without delay.



But I wouldn`t go I would stay a while
I would make sure that I made her smile,
She hated to think that she was keeping me
She always thought of others you see.



I know a light went out the day she died
And her Sons and family were not dry eyed,
I will miss Mary I think with a sigh
Sometimes it`s just so hard to say goodbye.
