"We Have Lived and Loved Together"

We have lived and loved together
Through many changing years;
We have shared each other's gladness
And wept each other's tears;

I have known ne'er a sorrow
That was long unsoothed by thee;
For thy smiles can make a summer
Where darkness else would be.

Like the leaves that fall around us
In autumn's fading hours,
When the cloud of sorrow looms
And sadness on us showers;

And though many such we've known, love,
Too prone, alas, to range,
We both can speak of one love
Which time can never change.

We have lived and loved together
Through many changing years;
We have shared each other's gladness
And wept each other's tears.

And let us hope the future
As the past has been will be:
I will share with thee my sorrows,
And thou thy joys with me.
