Roses have faded …
The roses have faded on the vine,
gone are the days you were mine,
feeling so very fine –
now all the melodies are silent.
Footsteps echo loudly,
the clock ticks the hours,
loneliness hangs heavy,
wish the sun would shine again.
Another season has changed,
the dark days are coming,
wishing we could go dancing,
perhaps if you come in my dreams.
The skies once blue have turned gray,
carefree days slowly slipping away,
the waves at the seashore,
washing away the footprints –
left behind from a whole summer long,
I look at the once lovely roses,
now wilted and sad,
came the autumn rains
and the roses and I were crying.
Then as the sun came out again,
the autumn winds,
blew the petals,
sending them dancing across the skies,
with many farewells –
to the summer that had been.
But even though the path,
through winter is long,
after the ice and snow have gone,
the spring will come again
and the summer will dance in –
the lovely roses will bloom once more.
As southern breezes,
bring back skies of blue,
happy summer memories,
will return to me of you.
I’ll be singing with the songbirds,
and perhaps as you gaze down on me.
you’ll join us in a happy chorus or two.
