When the nights are endless and the days are over,
When the moon doesn't glow and the sun stops shining,
When eternal night falls and the blue sky darkens,
When the birds stop tweeting and children stop laughing,
When conversations end and deals are closed,
When the flowers stop growing and the leaves all fall,
When the wind doesn't blow and the waves stop crashing,
When heavy hearts break and the curtains close,
When the days draw cold and we give in,
When it all looks bleak and we know we can't win,
When the last tear is wept and silence falls,
When the earth stops turning and there is nothing left,
When all is completed and returned to dust,
When the life cycle ends and we cease to exist,
When the proof is gone and this is just a void,
Without a trace of our past or a hint of our life,
We will know we lived and loved.
And may it be forever written in the stars, that you were mine, and I was yours.
