from now

When the world stops turning,
And all energy wanes,
When hope stops yearning,
Under life’s rich pains
I‘ll hold you tight, sweet love.

When it seems just too hard,
When foolish is as anger starts
And a single shard –
rips through both our hearts,
I’ll make amends, dear little one.

When your disease will not go,
When your body will not heal
And mind says no –
I simply will not feel,
I will be your star, my beautiful.

When all is said and done,
When the last word is uttered,
And the houses under the sun –
Have all been closed and shuttered,
I will still be here, for you.

From now until forever.
