84-year-old Man Writes Heartbreaking Song About Loving and Losing His Wife

An 84-year-old man by the name of "Grandpa AJ" Ludwig sent a song that he had wrote to YouTuber and rapper Mac Lethal about meeting, living with, and losing his wife. It's a stern reminder that life is short, fast, and we need to always cherish every moment in it.

Lyrics by Grandpa A.J.:

"This is a story about my wife

My sweet wife, her name is Grace

I met her in 1953,

she had freckles on her face

a poodle skirt: it was navy blue

saddle shoes: they were black and white

I said my name is A.J.

I’d like to take you out tonight

she said you’re very handsome sir

with your outfit I’m impressed

but a lady ain't a lady if she so easily says yes

i may change my mind one day

and let you take me on a date

i said your beauty is so boundless

you’re so perfect — I would wait

until the very last day of my life…...'

I swear it’s true

I’d die happy knowing I spent at least

one day with you

Did she finally agree to see me?

Why yes she did

We were married a year later, we had 2 great kids

We were married a year later, we were unified as 1

We had a daughter named Nicole

We had Anthony he’s our son

We bought a tiny house with a yard

it had a dog his name was Moon

i used to watch Grace

garden every Sunday afternoon

i used to watch the Sun dance

off of her golden skin

her curly locks of her,

bounced in the calm wind

she used to hold my hands

as our fingers intertwined

she’d say:

All I really want to do is kiss you one more time

All I really want to do is kiss you one more time.

All I really want to do is kiss you one more time.

she’d say:

All I really want to do is kiss you one more time

Then I'd lock my lips with hers

and we would go somewhere divine.

we were married 10 years

we were married 20 years

we were married 30 years

every day our love grew more

we were married 40 years

we were married 50 years

we were married 60 years

then we were married 64

I use to hold her as we danced inside our kitchen

my life felt complete not a single piece was missin'

i fell in love so many times throughout my life

but every single time was with the same woman and she’s my wife

Growing old with someone hurts

its a process full of pain

sometimes the sunny days

are full of black clouds and rain

You need to have kids & grandkids

it’s the truth

So as you approach your final days

you can still enjoy your youth

My sweet wife her name was Grace

she started walking with a cane

in her smile, i could see love

but in her eyes, i could see pain

I can’t forget the day she told me he could really see the end

i told her underneath it all she’s always been my greatest friend

Every single night before we’d go to sleep and close our eyes

she’d look at me, she wouldn’t say goodnight she’d say goodbye

I remember the last night she went to sleep and closed her eyes

we held each other one final time and said goodbye

and then she died

I locked my lips with hers and we went somewhere divine

All your friends and family were at the funeral in tears

even Anthony came,

you hadn’t spoken to him in years

my sweet wife her name was Grace

how i miss you oh so much

i still possess your memories but i sure miss your touch

i still possess your memories but i sure miss your touch

i know your soul was not inside the ashes or the dust

all I want to do is kiss you one more time

all I really want to do is kiss you one more time.

all I really want to do is kiss you one more time.

i can’t wait to see you in heaven baby it’ll be so divine

~Love A.J."
