We were sweethearts, you and I
in a time that seems long past.
You were young and handsome
when I found love at last.
Each time I saw you coming
my heart was all aglow!
I felt I couldn't love you more-
How little did I know.
Time has passed and now
my life with you is so beautiful today.
But, now, when I see you coming
my heart glows in a different way!
Young love's a stream dancing meerily
A ripple of constant delight!
While older love is a deep steady river
that flows with strength and might!
With the passing of youth
many hearts feel love is done
but older love brings a new beauty
a beauty like the brightest and most blazing sun!
