How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you,
And longer if I can


How long will I need you?
As long as the seasons need to
Follow their plan


How long will I be with you?
As long as the sea is bound to
Wash upon the sand

How long will I want you?
As long as you want me to,
And longer by far


How long will I hold you?
As long as your father told you,
As long as you can

How long will I give to you?
As long as I live through you,
However long you say

How long will I love you?
As long as stars are above you,
And longer if I may

We're all traveling through time together
Every day of our lives
All we can do is do our best
To relish this remarkable ride

    How Long Will I Love You? - Forever - These are the thoughts as I lay awake at night seriously missing my long time partner, alone, realizing the wonders of our time together, the hopes of our future together and the desire to continue our love forever and ever, now broken by the limits of our earthly ties. Though I shed a tear, I also cherish the memories of our life together - the walks in the forest and along our lake, fish jumping at the shore, the birds chirping in the bush, our dogs at our feet and the wind in your hair. How long will I love you? Only Forever and ever!
