I wish for this to be eternity,
Where I am yours, and you’ll be ever mine,
Where every little thought of mine is thine—
And bliss is ours, always, eternally.
Now death has slunk away so stealthily,
We both will thus not cross that dreaded line
’Twixt life and sleep. Our stars will ever shine;
We’ll never die, our joy—a boundless sea!
I am fulfilled by you in sweetest dreams.
By you I love, and by your love I love.
The hour’s late—and so the starts do gleam
In restive points of delight high above.
Under these stars we walk without a word,
Basking in love that Life and Time conferred.
