If I Were A Mayfly

If I were a mayfly, living but for a day, 
I’d still live each moment with no thought of goodbye, 
Ever hopeful like summer in the month of May, 
If I were a mayfly. 

For though life would fleet, my love for you would abide,  
And though time might flit, long would the memories stay
Of a sunrise and a sunset spent by your side. 

I would be glad that with you I’ve grown old and gray, 
That passion has waxed yet never waned with the tide, 
And I’ve spent a life with you ere I fly away, 
If I were a mayfly.
