A Song For Ancient Couples

Thanks for the sunshine that you bring me.
Thanks for the loving that helps me be.
Thanks for the tender, the gentle, the many
— Oh yes, the many! — 
Far too few moments you've been with me.

Thanks for the sunshine that you bring me,
Thanks for the loving that set me free.
Thanks for tender, the gentle, the many
— Oh yes, the many! — 
Far too few moments you've been with me.

For only the lonely 
Imagine in silence
A love that is steadfast 
Through all of love's ways,

And only the lonely 
Imagine in silence
A love that is true 
Through all of the days.

So thanks for the sunshine that you bring me.
And thanks for the loving that helps me be.
And thanks for the tender, the gentle, the many,
— Oh yes, the many! —  
Far too few moments you've been with me.
