Never forgotten that one day, Never forgotten Love's sweet way! Cruel was Fate; Not yet too late, Never shall Fate now say us "Nay." Is it a dream? Never to part! Shall I awake with sudden start, Never to know You lov'd me so; Never to know your gentle heart? Now is the day with beauty rife, Peace after war, calm after strife; Fate was unkind, Fate now is blind; This is Nirvana! This is life!
