Anniversaries, they come and they go.
Some time now, since that final May snow.
Anniversaries, they have floated past,
Some time now, I reminisce the last.
Anniversaries, none ever forgotten.
Some time now, since your everlasting smile was taken,
Anniversaries, from coral, to every hue.
Some time now, since our tidal-wave passed through.
Anniversaries, when love grew stronger,
Some time now, since the years became longer,
Anniversaries, a journey of love, suffering and pain.
Some time now, since our river filled with rain.
Your troubles fell with an Autumn leaf.
Forever enshrined within your gracious belief.
