My Song

There is a happy song I cannot sing today, For all the thoughts of you Were surely washed away By swiftly flowing tears, That mingled with the rain. I searched the empty hallways, And every corner of my mind, But all the fading memories Had left me long ago. All I saw were shadows Where you had been before. I listened for your voice In every song I heard But all the fading echoes Had left me long ago, All I heard were shadows Falling to the ground. There is a happy song I want to sing today, Of sunlight mixed with shadows And memories of you, Of flowers, songs, and laughter . . . All mingled with the rain.
