If you are near


As long as you
are with me,
eternal will my summer be.

Even when freezing rain
drizzles down from grey clouds,
your smile brings a summer’s day.

Even when life tosses the worst at my door,
I fear no pain or death
if you are near.

As long as you
are with me still,
eternal will my summer be.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
