I walk towards the fire and sing
Of summers gone and distant spring
Of lands of gold and places new.
I still love you.
When cold winds blow the driving snow
I won't let go, I won't get low,
I know that when this winters through
I'll be with you.
My life is gone, my years passed by
My aching heart and dimming eye
Remember days and hours I knew
When I held you.
I close the book, put out the light
And disappear into the night
But still remain as lovers do
A part of you.
And though my mind is lost in sleep
Despite the black, eternal deep
I will forever be the one who's
There with you.
So when the all become the one
And planets fall toward the sun
The greatness of a life anew
Begins with you.
