I have fallen in love
With the same woman three times;
In a day spanning 19 years
Of tearful joys and joyful tears.

I loved her first when she was young,
Enchanting and vibrant, eternally new.
She was brilliant, fragrant,
And cool as the morning dew.

I fell in love with her the second time;
When first she bore her child and mine
Always by my side, the source of my strength,
Helping to turn the tide.

But there were candles to burn
The world was my concern;
While our home was her domain,
And the people were mine
While the children were hers to maintain;

So it was in those eighteen years and a day,
Till I was detained; forced in prison to stay.

Suddenly she's our sole support;
Source of comfort,
Our wellspring of Hope,
On her shoulders felt the burden of Life.

I fell in love again,
With the same woman the third time.
Looming from the battle,
Her courage will never fade.

Amidst the hardships she has remained,
Undaunted and unafraid.
She is calm and composed,
She is God's lovely maid.

    A woman that he love spanning 19 years.. She give him a support from anything problem that he got.. I think this is a story about love they spanning about 19 years... And the woman that he love like a god from heaven down to the earth help him... When he in the jail they children and his wife so worry about him... This story of life from he young the wife is kind always give a support so it was in those eighteen years and a day, till I was detained, forced in prison to stay. Her wife always amidst the hardships she has remained, undaunted and unafraid. She is calm and composed, I always hear this song, my feeling always sad when I hear this song I can imagine this song when I love a one woman that I love, I fell in love with the same woman to I can imagine this song can give you a one story that you have in your life... In one day I always hear 20 times each one day.. Before I sleep I play the song I hear until I sleep in the dream I can imagine the story is in sign my heart...

    My name William
