There was a song my heart was singing,
loud and clear, full of joy
in my ears it was ring-a-ling-ringing.
The perfect tone, stance, and melody
What peace, love and joy it would create
And then it quickly slipped away from me
I should have held tightly, never let you go
So precious and unique you were
Like a flake of crystalline new fallen snow
I knew you wouldn’t come back to me
As I watched you fly swiftly away
Goodbye dear song, I release you to be free
Oh song, sweet lost song of mine
Where have you roamed and strolled
What great adventures did you find?
You will be so very greatly missed
Sweet lost precious rhyme and melody
Gone like the dream of the first one ever kissed.
