The shades of night fall oh, so silently
Upon the dimmed remainder of each day
The telltale shadows here reminding me
Of another time and another way.
There was a place so far and long ago
Perhaps one might believe it never was
I lost my heart I prayed it did not show
Sadness follows loss, it quite often does.
This heart of mine that never fret a fear
May chance survive intact with small success
So full it cannot hold another tear
Or find a love it can at last possess.
