It is from the Broadway version of Les Miserables. It's from the song Fontine sings at her deathbed, which has some other nice images in it as well as being rather touching. I do not know who actually penned that lyric (I'm sure it shows on my CDs at home, I can look it up if you are interested). I suppose it is probably bad form for me to quote it without properly crediting it.
