You would have been 100 today

You would have been 100 today,

I'm sure we would have celebrated in a special way


Perhaps a gathering of friends and family

All of us chatting away so happily.


You would have been 100 today,

Oh the things you'd have seen along the way

Five grandchildren, all quite bold

We would tease you for growing old


You would have been 100 today,

a letter from the queen we would display

Instead all we can do is reminice,

oh how easy you are to miss


You would have been 100 today,

we stand hand in hand, bent down to lay

an angel to mark your resting place

with a tear or two on every face


You would have been 100 today,

I am sure there is a party underway

although it may be up in heaven,

our pride and love has not lessened


By Jessica Muxlow on the eve of Alan Muxlow's 100th Birthday.
