In the spring of my life she came to me
She brought sunshine where winter winds had blown
Then I took her for my wife in the spring of my life
And she brought me a joy I never known
And the years they went by in the spring of my life
And in summer she blessed me with a child
Love continued to grow in the summer of my life
And in every morning sun I saw her smile
In the autumn of my years I noticed the tears
And I knew that our lives was in the past
Though I've tried to pretend I knew it was the end
For the autumn of my life had come at last
Now just what do you say to a child only ten
How do you tell him that his daddy's goin' away
I wonder do I tell him that I reached the autumn of my life
And that perhaps he'll understand some cold winter's day
Now the rose can't be found on the snow covered ground
And the sun cannot shine through cloudy skies
But I'm richer you see for the years she gave to me
And I am content in the autumn of my life
