Remember me

       When the south wind blows

And the grass

       In silence weeps.

And the morning dew

       Like tears of pain

Falls

       On the ground that sleeps.

And the games we played

       And the looks we gave

And the letters

       We would send,

And the whispered lies

       To each other’s eyes

Of a love

       We knew would end.

Now the years have aged

       And the earth has spun

And my life

       Has walked its course,

But some nights I’ve sat

       And my tears I’ve shed

And I’ve cried

       ‘Till my voice was hoarse.

So remember me

       When the south wind blows

And the forest

       In silence weeps.

And the morning rain

       Like tears of pain

Falls

       On the ground that sleeps.
