How happy we were, together,
When you were snatched away from me;
Going through the maze of life, together,
But you were snatched away from me!
Every little work I did, was really done for you
And happiest was I to see you smile;
The twinkle in your eyes, or the deep thoughtful look
Clearly showed you had me in your mind.
I still remember the day, that glorious day,
When you first held my hand
And gave me a bright, yellow sunflower:
Your first gift to me.
Those innocent days of childhood,
Times so pure and full of love
Soon turned to days of duty and cares;
We were happy, though, only to have each other.
And yet, you were snatched away from me!
The love we shared, the enriching of one another;
Has it all turned to nothing?
When I look around me, you cannot be seen!
Your promise, to be by my side, broken?
I knew God when I loved you
And we worshipped Him together;
The same God has snatched you from me!
Now I ask God: why, and for how long?
In my own way, I hear the answer;
Somewhere deep within me, I know:
When the facade of time breaks away,
When my duties here are done
And I, weary, am released at last;
We will be together, I know for sure;
You, by my side, once more;
Not to be snatched away again.
