How often do I think of you?
As often as one plus one is two;
Whenever the sunny sky is blue;
That's how often I think of you.
How much do I wish for you?
Every time a star shines through;
Every time the grass makes dew;
That's how much I wish for you.
How long will I wait for you?
Until the end of days is through;
Until my name upon cold granite is hewn;
That's how long I will wait for you.
How often? How much? How long?
Until my heart is dead and gone.
