MY shorter sonnet version
I Do Accept by jaybird1

Throughout the longtime and worn night,
I must go on, keep up the fight.
Regard each day as a new start,
despite my tired and weary heart.

In eve'ry thing I say or do,
my thoughts always return to you.
You were the sugar in my tea.
It was true then, will always be.

Fond memories I'll always keep,
until I take my final sleep;
And when that comes, I'll look around
for you, if I am Heaven bound.

You still remain within my heart-
Keep me in yours, till I depart.

Another tribute to my long departed bride- jaybird
