I'm Coming, Honey

So often through his illness
I'd hear him call my name,
And hurry to his bedside,
Saying as I came -
"I'm Coming, Honey".

Now his room is silent,
No voice is calling me,
I do not have to answer
Another urgent plea -
"I'm Coming, Honey".

Now he is in Heaven,
Free from pain and care,
He knows that I am ready
Someday to meet him there -
"I'm Coming, Honey".
