In wandering through life’s happenstance
I chanc’ed upon thee
‘Twas such a stroke of wondrous glee
Did hearts collide, I took the chance.
I loved you from that long first glance
For all ’twas plain to see
That you did feel the same for me
And thus began our life’s romance.
Though anguish walks along in stride
Our join’ed hearts did all defeat
And though these harsh times oft repeat
Their vilest aims stay yet denied
In laughter we recall the treat
Of joyful times spent side by side.
