Fond Farewell

Fond Farewell                                       ©2017 Robert George BMI

 

Scarlet teardrops dripping from the trees

Floating westward on the Autumn breeze

Their loneliness is tempting me to follow them back

On the chilly night she hopped that train

We were crackin’ jokes to hide our pain

And dyin’ leaves had laid a downy quilt on the track

 

Then she kissed my forehead in the soft moonlight

Got on board and slowly slipped off in the night

 

Now I wonder if the past will keep its promise

And wine suspects that time will only tell

But maybe our memories are better off

If we leave our sadness and loss

With a fond farewell

 

It’s just human nature to pretend

Our connection never had to end

Cos hearts hold fast to kisses and forget the things they lack

 

And they sometimes think a flame that cooled and dwindled

Now deserves to be rekindled

 

So I wonder if the past will keep its promise

And wine suspects that time will only tell

But maybe our memories are better off

If we leave our sadness and loss

With a fond farewell

A fond farewell

 

There are nights I look at sad October trees

And I share their bitter, lonely tears

I touch my forehead and it feels as if

Her kiss hasn’t dried in all these years

 

Then I wonder if the past will keep its promise

And wine suspects that time will only tell

But maybe our memories are better off

If we leave our sadness and loss

With a fond farewell

 

O maybe our memories are better off

If we leave our sadness and loss

With a fond farewell

A fond farewell

A fond farewell…
