How does a moment last forever?
How can a story never die?
It is love we must hold onto
Never easy, but we try

Sometimes our happiness is captured
Somehow, our time and place stand still
Love lives on inside our hearts and always will

Then when the shadows overtake us
Just when we feel all hope is gone
We’ll hear our song and know once more
Our love lives on


Take-away message

  • our hopes are something worth fighting for! No matter what you are or have been fighting for, always have hope in You!
  • Before the last petal fall, we still have a chance to fight back!
