You ask me how I care.
I will love you past my dying day
Even if you are not there.

I will love you every second
Of every minute that passes by
I’ll love you more than words can say.

And now I’ll tell you why

I hold you in my heart
My memories are dear.

Your smile, your touch, your smell
Are with me even when you’re not here

And from now until long after
Time itself comes to an end.

When the final darkness falls
It’s to you my last kiss I’ll send.

I will never want another
I will never tell you lies
I will always love you more each day
For all our future lives.
