Over the years life treated her fair
Leaving only the memories of days gone by
She wed another and waited still
While the love in her heart ask why.
Now twenty years have come and gone
And still she waits for her knight
No one knows and no one cares
That the love in her heart shines bright.
Another ten years and it's thirty plus some
News finally comes that her knight is ill
Life is ebbing fast away
And the love in her heart stands still.
The shadows lengthen as the days grow dim
The picture of life fades into the past
Into eternity they both do walk
And the love in their hearts is together at last.
