Once in a Willow Grove

I can't see the fading clock
     but I hear those mournful chimes,
Been echoing through my heart
     from the most ancient of times.
I can sense that she's standing
     on some distant foreign shore,
Wond'ring if I think of her
     like I had done once before.

Her hair's waiving in the breeze
     while her eyes are set alight,
Younger than the years gone by
     since I saw her on that night.
It was from a willow grove
     under silence of the moon,
She walked on another path;
     left a broken heart to swoon.

Were blossoms on the mountain
     and white roses on a grave,
The photographs once cherished
     are but fantasies ill saved.
I see floods in the valleys,
     I walk through mem'ries ablaze,
Yet the times keep on moving
     into soon forgotten days.

The hands of a clock still turn
     in the whispers of the breeze,
All the thoughts that have passed by
     can still bring me to my knees.
A willow grove waits no more
     for the ones been left behind,
Still she stands upon the shore;
     a broken heart drifts through time.
