One or the other must leave.
One or the other must stay.
One or the other must grieve.
That is forever the way.
That is the vow that was sworn.
Faithful til death do us part.
Braving what had to be borne.
Hiding the ache in the heart.
One, howsoever adored.
First must be summoned away.
That is the will of the Lord.
One or the Other must stay.
