• A flower grows from beneath a blanket
    Of fine and purest white
    It reaches toward the sun for warmth,
    For heat and for the light

    My love for you grows stronger still,
    Despite the surrounding cold
    My heart is yours, bartered gone
    For yours has it been sold

    Its petals shine from morning dew
    Its stem grows stiff and strong
    It stands strong through the freezing cold
    It stands the winter long

    I long for you, for your soft touch
    I miss the way you smile
    The longer that we stay apart
    The longer every mile

    The flower stretches through the snow
    It reaches toward the sun
    And now without you the color is gone
    The flower's petals, dun

    But as we talk, and as we learn
    The flower comes back to life
    The snow now melts and goes away
    As you take away my strife

    Spring is here and growth abounds
    As you and I are one
    We are together, we are in love
    The snow for now is done

    I see the future, in dreams I have
    Of our life, long and true
    I see the times where all I need
    Are comforting words from you

    I see the times when winter comes
    As winter tends to do
    But we still love, and we still live
    And I do still love you

    And so we live, with children ours
    And a life of much to see
    With love we live, to live we love
    Happy together are we

    I see the flower, older now,
    But still strong with fresh new leaves
    I see it growing, tall and strong
    Reaching to the eaves

    We are now old, as years have passed
    But old together are we
    And strong our love still today
    As strong as it can be
