The summer was sweet and the flowers were blooming
The wind was as gentle and sweet as a kiss
The great northern lights danced above us till morning
The stars were like diamonds, we each made our wish

The mountains were green and they climbed to the heavens
The rivers ran sparkling down to the sea
Your laugh like a bell filled my heart with such gladness
Our songs they were happy, our voices were free

We built a green bower of willows and roses
Sang of our pleasures and sang of our woes
How could we have known this would be your last summer
How precious the bower, how precious the rose

The world without you has gone dark as the winter
The sounds of the river are frozen and still
The lark has grown silent, the stars have no luster
But I'll live through this darkness, I know that I will

I know I will find you among the bright flowers
We'll walk in the rain and we'll dance in the wind
We'll build a green bower and fish all the rivers
We'll watch the stars fall and we'll smile once again

I still love you more than the earth and its beauties
You are all my seasons, we never shall part
For though I have lost you, you live on forever
Oh, joy of my future, oh child of my heart
