A thousand lives I’ll bear with you

In sickness, pain, and deepest woe;

In laughter, joy, and merry heart;

My friend, from you I’ll not depart.


One call and I’ll be by your side;

One look and I feel what you feel inside.

Two lives introduced by timely choice;

Two lives united by one voice.


Yes, change’s been inevitable as time;

To different worlds we’ve been confined—

You thrived in pain and poverty;

I lived in gain and dignity.


Now, death has come to sever us,

To take your life and all our past.

For one more chance, do not let go;

Friend, you’re the only one I know.
