Salesians of Don Bosco – Philippine South Province FIS


Will you be there beside me
When I won’t be so loveable
When beauty has long faded
And the years long spent

Will you be there beside me
When the storm’s blown full
And the wind beating and screeching
Should leave me pale and pall

Will you be there beside me
When I have lost all glory
And shadows loom in my eyes
Eyes of a sad, sad story

Will you be there beside me
As I breath my last
Alone and shivering as I gasp
Life slowly turning past

Will you be there beside me
When I’ll have faded away
Not in mind and heart I stay
Dissolving, fading in the fray

And, yes, you are beside me
And, yes, I am happy
To have you just beside me
To share eternity
