We walked together holding hand-in-hand,
Against the wishes of rest,
We knew not what our destiny would hold,
Was it for the worst, or for the best?
But you were always beside me,
And rest I did not care,
Even if all the hardships were to befall me,
Nothing did I fear.
Then came the period in our life,
Which we always aspired,
The plunge that we had taken in our youth,
Brought us bliss as desired.
Together we reared a family,
Facing the struggles on our own,
But now in the autumn of my life,
Why you left me alone?
Today I live a lonely life,
Which I thought I would never,
But when my soul deserts my body,
We will be together again forever.
