Growing Old Together - Anchored In Him



 

 



This is a translation from French to English
of a beautiful song.


Translated by Gary D. Abell of Canada


How important time is
When you have this chance to grow old together.
For in the depths of your eyes lives my affection
And in the depths of my heart lives your youth.

Like a childhood prayer
I get the assurance from the kindly words you speak.
And as I picture your hand in mine
The slightest smile we share can only mean I love you.

But, one of us will go first.
They will shut their eyes forever
With one last smile.
And the other, having lost half of their life
Will live each day in darkness.
Their heart will surely beat
But for whom, or why?

With the echo of your footsteps and the door partly opened
My heart beats faster and I find you again.
When we are hand in hand, I forget about everything else.
It’s almost as though time has stopped.

But, one of us will go first.
They will shut their eyes forever
With one last smile.
One day, one of us will be too tired.
They will go, almost happy to be first.
While the one left behind can only
wait to be reunited in heaven.

And as I picture your hand in mine
The slightest smile we share can only mean
I love you.


Dedicated to all the families that have a loved
suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Even though
this disease robs a person of their dignity over a
long period of time and they seem to forget, the
eyes may tell a loved one more than they can
say in words.

May God Bless and comfort you.
