When you are old and gray,
I will lay among the flowers,
forever happy.
Perfumed by their
magnificent beauty.

Someday you will follow me,
to my flowery grave.
Like the setting sun,
our time will come.
We will become
two lover’s
dancing with death,
arm in arm.

Though our death
has no meaning,
our love will grow
forever more
among the flowers.

“Tamen semperque vivet esse felicem.”

Latin meaning:
“Forever live to be happy.”
