Summers in the valley

Summers in the valley
A distant memory
Still plague her
They were all about love

Those memories seem so far away
When innocent children used to play
With heavens watching 
From above

Skies bluer than his eyes
Lying beneath the starry skies
What happened
To that heartfelt vow

Running through the green fields
Between rocks and little creeks
Anxiously waiting in the balcony
For a message from the dove

And if there be a rainy time
Spending hours inside
Impersonating Princesses and knights
Grandma's broth boiling on the stove

Now she returns to that old world
Not a laugh not a word
Remembering all those times
Singing songs reciting rhymes

He grew up and so did she
Grew apart and the bonds grew too weak
Silence fills the empty house
Since no one no more plays cat and mouse

She looks at the hills
Leaning over the window sill
But the magic is gone
Just like the tune of their own little song

She hums the tune to herself
Reaching for a book on the shelf
Magic and the tune both be gone
But her memory not yet lost

Summers in the valley
A distant memory
Still plague her
They were all about love.
