Remember when life seemed easy
And the dance came so seamless;
Music seemed to pour from the sky
And summer nights were soft and dreamless.
Remember when you and I together
Waltzed step and step in love;
And conflict and rancor were unknown;
We moved together while stars danced above.
Remember when a smile would mend
All the tensions of the working day;
And the sound of your voice harkened joy;
We never thought to censure what to say.
Remember when our memories were sweet
And separation meant only a few hours apart;
Those days have passed, my dear;
What remains is only my broken heart.
