My lover and my mentor
Now lies in her grave
And I’m left to mourn her
Whom my soul did save

I’m staring at her tombstone
My heart is full of grief
I fear that part of my life
Has been stolen by a thief

Stolen by a thief
Stolen by a thief

The elements will wear this tombstone away
And one day we will join you
Us who for you pray
The words upon your tombstone
Will be worn away
But we will be united
Somehow somewhere some day

Stolen by a thief
Stolen by a thief

As that tombstone starts to crack
From the bitter cold
And when I come to visit you
Bent double and old
My memories of love will seem like yesterday
True love never forgets
Well that is what they say

You were stolen by a thief
You were stolen by a thief

So lover dear,
I love you forever more
You, my blessed lover
Your memory I’ll adore

So as the wind and snow and rain
Beats down upon your tomb
My comfort is
We’ll be united one day soon

You were stolen by a thief
Stolen by a thief
