On the Sundays in the springtime when the scented flowers grow, I shall dream of you, my darling, and the love we used to know. On the Sundays of the summer when the sun is in the sky, I shall think of you, my dearest, and my heart will softly sigh. On the Sundays of the autumn when the wind is growing cold, I shall long for you beloved. On the Sundays of the winter when the snow is all around, I shall weep for you, my sweetheart, underneath the frozen ground. On the Sundays of my lifetime, through the long remaining years, I shall love you to the moment God will dry my final tear.
