Seasons Of The Heart

The seasons of the heart can’t last forever
And an autumn chill lies in the summer breeze
My love for you is like a raging river
That even the dead of winter cannot freeze

   Perhaps our pathways will branch around the next bend
   And never more I’ll feel your warm embrace
   But I’ll hold you close forever in my heart, dear
   And in every lover’s eyes I’ll see your face.

I’ve heard for everything there is a season
And I’ve come to see that winter heralds spring
So if we have to part I’ll try not to regret it
For the love we shared will brighten every thing

When my last breath on earth is taken
And all my rivers flow down to the sea
I only hope for me it can be written
That I tried to be the best that I could be
