Minou is like a constant star
     Amid the heavens bright.
If I be near, if I be far,
     She guides me through the night.

Minou is like a steady stream
     That runs across the sands.
She wakes me from a restless dream
     With gentle voice and hands.

Minou is like a memory
     Of life beyond the grave.
With her beside me I am free—
     Together we are brave.
