A Touching Country Song About a Spouse Dying

If you’re looking for a country song about a spouse dying as well as one that pays tribute to the living spouse, then be sure to listen to ‘Thank You’ by Johnny Reid. It’s one of the most powerful, moving songs you’ll ever hear.

The video and lyrics combined with the almost spiritual music encapsulates the grace and commitment of a couple who’ve lived a long life together. The video can be taken two ways; either the wife thanking her husband for their life together, or the husband thanking his wife for staying by his side through it all.

The Circle of Life in This Video Will Make You Cry

The video shows an older couple nearing the end of the husband’s life; It reverts back and forth between the wife packing their belongings in their family home after he’s passed away, then shows the last period of his life as she cared for him during his final days. At the end you see her greeting the new young couple who are now the owners of her home; she smiles and hands them the keys – Their book is obviously beginning while this chapter of the elderly wife’s has come to a close.

Cliche or Not, This Song Makes You Realize How Short Life Is

When we’re young, with so much life ahead of ourselves, our future is unwritten and I think it’s safe to say we almost think we’re invincible. Personally, I remember these feelings like it was yesterday. Of course, as we get older our priorities change. For me, kindness and love have become the most important aspects of life. The couple in this video, could easily be my parents – and without hesitation, I know my father, who passed in 2013 would want to say Thank You to my mother many times over. As the lyrics say:

‘if I only had two words left to say to you, with my last breath, I’d confess the truth to you, you’ve never left my side, even when I fell behind, Thank you, Thank you for the life you’ve given me’.

Yes Dad, we thank you too, forever and for always.
