I remember the smiles
The twinkle in their eyes
Twas the edge of the emerald forest it was
Where they danced in the twilight of the morn!
It was only yesterday ----- but I was there
Dancing along with them !
No,, no it was not a dream
We held hands as I heard
The temple bells ring out
In the cool summer breeze
The night shadows danced on the winds
No,,,, it was not a dream !
Songs from the sea whispered by
As I caught the light from the diamonds
No,,,,, they were not dew drops
The unicorn from the emerald forest
told me so !
Was it just a lullaby from yesterday
No ,, it could not be for I was there
dancing along with them ,,, I remember !
