The Years

May the earth be soft beneath your feet

May the air you breathe be sweet

I cannot rest my love on a vacant heart

So I pray, my love, my dear, that you will sleep, sweet

May the stars rest low above your head

May their light cast out where you might tread

May the whispering winds carry words so soft 

And sweet from me, my love, my sweet

And I think that you are 

The most beautiful thing 

That I have seen in years

 

The years, the years 

The years move on

Our hearts beat soft

The years, the years

The years move on,

Our hearts beat softly

 

May the sun lift slow to warm you dear

May its rays dry up your tears

May the waking dawn bring the love you seek

May your heart be strong, my love, my sweet
