"And glad to hear those words I may yet be
that life may find in you purpose to burn;
yet I fear as darkness lives it may rule,
and life shall flee from one whom I give love.
Not the sense of which death so springs forth hence,
but in such way I may care you do live."
I care for you so much more than you know,
and I pray you live even longer yet,
no more should death cast his dark shadow near.
This I pray in earnst with ferver immense,
never will I give up on making you smile,
nor will my worry for you soon cease.
Stay with me as I will so stick with you
for I care only that you are happy.
