A fortune-found lover
I dreamed that he entered my life
And my life was a dream
Some friends in a house
And a garden that grew all year long
With tomatoes and greens
Our kittens grew fat
And our children grew tall
But we didn't grow old, not at all

We only grew younger and wiser
And stronger and then
As the years passed along
We started to thin and grow clear
As a stream in the spring
With a melting snow song
The light that shown in our faces
Reflected the light
That we built our lives on

We had sunlight to laugh by
And moonlight to dream by
And fire to sing in the cold
And candles that burned by our bed
Where we loved every night
Til each night had grown old
And after the candles burned out
We would lie side by side
And together we'd dream

A fortune-found lover
I dreamed that he entered my life
And our life was a dream
