The anguished plea of a separated soul mate


                                                                         Heart and Soul:

                                       One Last Dream

                                                                            (Authored and Recited by Richard Lee Orey)                



                          O, Dear Heart

                          There never can be another

                          You are my heart and soul

                       The hurt of being alone

                        Lingers as time stands still

                        My need a growing pain

                        Your love my only fill

                        The memory of your company

                        Watches over my aching soul

                        The absence of your loving heart

                        Leaving a vacant hole

                        I search my deadened mind

                        To know again your joyful love

                        No way on Earth to compensate

                        Your love now up above

                        O, the angels in God's Heaven

                        Know the secret of your role

                        For there never can be another

                        You are my heart and soul

                        There never can be another

                        You are my heart and soul

                        How to know God's will is done

                        When my ache remains so strong

                        Every moment of every hour

                        Tells me where you belong

                        And so I beg for mercy

                        And the pleasure of your life

                        Resurrection and renewal

                        As my first and only wife

                        I ask for one last dream

                        To hold you close once more

                        And breathe with you as one

                        As we enter Heaven's Door

                        O, the angels in God's Heaven

                        Know the secret of your role

                        For there never can be another

                        You are my heart and soul

                        There never can be another

                        You are my heart and soul
