When it happens you are there
When it stops you are gone
When the wind caresses your hair
I will sing that melodic song
When the sun fades to a deep darkness
When you have decided to leave the earth
When the funeral ends and I confess
That I knew nothing that was worse
When my hands become cold and stiff
When the leaves fall from the trees
When I know what life truly is
Then I can enjoy the summer breeze
When it happens you are there
When it stops you are gone
When the rain wets my long, gray hair
I will know my love is gone
