walk the alleys of the city of the past.
And I see
the dim beams of a nearby streetlight cast
the dust upon the barren windowsill
long abandoned house in which we used to live.
I run my
finger in the dust upon the bygone year
rediscover 'neath the dust forgotten smiles and tears.
We used to
song of love together in our happy home
and jump and roll in fields in which we loved to roam.
wandered hand in hand together 'neath the shady trees;
you and you loved me too, and so I loved you three.
our home within this house's strong protective walls;
we kept our love, and here we shared in all.
you found the walls confining, and you had to roam;
And so you
packed your travel bags and left our happy home.
stay alone, and so I too went on my way.
now and then I think our paths may cross someday.
And we will
song of love together as we lightly roam
and jump and roll in fields which we will call our home.
wander hand in hand together 'neath the shady trees;
you and you'll love me too, and so I'll love you three.
