Melody -

1. Dear, we are younger and happier than that day
When you and I and Love were left alone
And the world's laughter and sadness died away
Into a rapt and exquisite monotone;
  2. We have lived and striven, not songless in the strife,
We have known good things and ill and either star;
We are younger than these lives born of our life,
We are happier than these little laughters are.

3. For life has given us this good gift: to know
The harmony in difference and that strain
Of humours unresolved that keeps us two;
Two souls that with a separate radiance glow,
Not to one dullness fused; that still retain
This You and I not less than I and You.
