A hundred years from now, dear heait
Wo will not care nt all;
If will not matter then a whit
Tho honey or the gall.
Tho summer days that wo hnve knonn
Will all forgotten bo and flown;
Tho garden will bo overgrown
Whero now the roses fall.
A hundred years from now, fond heart.
We'll neither lenow nor care,
What came of all life's bitterness
Or followed love's despair.
When all these years havo flown, sweet
heart, Tho grief will all bo o'er;
The sea of care will surge In vain
Upon tho careless shore.
A hundred years from now, sweetheart,
Wo will not mind the pain;
The throbbing crimson tfde of life
Will not havo left a stain.
This song wo sing together, dear,
Will mean no more than means a tear,
Let's build one cnstlo more In fapain.
And ono moro dream dream here.
