When always is just a brief moment
When oceans are only one drop
When infinity rolls up its pathway,
Only then will my love for you stop.

I'll no longer desire to hold you
I'll no longer dream of your touch,
When forever fades and unending ends
I'll no longer love you so much.

When water loses its wetness
When bitter is sweet to the taste,
When stars refuse to shine brightly
I won't long for the smile on your face.

I won't reach for your hand when I'm falling,
I won't call out your name in the dark.
When ageless grows old and timeless runs out,
I won't love you with all of my heart.
