For love is mightier than sorrow,
Time shared today, the past tomorrow,
And dreams but tiny crystal sands
Slipping through the tightest clinched hands;
I fear I must now step away,
Though so much more I long to say.
Still ever will I hold in thought
The dream my scarred hands could hold not.
And ever will I dance by night
With memory yet graced in white,
But by day ne'er 'gain call the name
That my love only could give shame.
For sorrow ne'er could pay this price
Nor would understanding suffice.
And so by shadow shall I live,
Ne'er ‘gain with a heart free to give.
But by happiness wished full fled
May love reach you, unlimited.
May every hope your heart holds true
By God's blessing be granted you.
By gentle kiss on starry night,
Forever Love, I'll hold you tight.
If but in dreams never to be,
I'll be loving you in memory.
