"For Diane, Time passes at the speed of light I cannot slow its pace Too soon I’ll sleep and see no more The exquisite beauty of your face T'was some fate of chance we even met But so important it was to me I found in you my friend for life and your friend I'll always be As age has dimmed my vision and my senses slow and dull Your picture in my mind is clear and my love is ever strong and full We'll some day part, too soon for me and the other to go alone I'm happy in the certain truth We'll always be as one." AMLA Mitch
