text: The gist of the song is as follows:
"I remember your love for me every moonlit night
When I close my eyes and think of you I can see your face so clearly.
We vowed to be true to one another
But words are weak, our vows may be forgotten
So let us erect a stone upon which there will be no more parting
And we will be alone together for all time"
