Candle in the Wind

I met you in the Autumn of my life,
at a time when we neither had husband
or wife.

Our Springs and Summers are gone,
and now we are deep into our life's Autumn.
What has been…has been and yesterday
is gone, tomorrow belongs to no one, so
My Darling, let's just sing today's song.

We will start anew, just You and I!
We'll dance and sing, kiss in the rain.
We'll thumb our nose at old father
time and make our new love rhyme.

We'll live and love until we die, and
then the world shall say, "They were
lovers from the day they met until the
day they died, like a candle flame flickers
in the wind, their love will burn until
eternity ends."
