A Silly Old Love Song

A silly old love song
From a few years ago
Touched every fibre
Of my inner soul

It described with passion
How I felt at the time
Things couldn't be better
Everything was in rhyme

But time isn't constant
Things start to change
Roles get reversed
And our life rearranged

The flame starts to flicker
Then darkness inside
Again we start searching
For that magical ride 

Uncertainty reigns
Our confidence shattered
Things once important
No longer mattered

Until that new day
When we feel it once more
That touching of hearts
Spirits that soar

A silly old love song
From a few years ago
Once more touches
My innermost soul

Third stanza is so true. Sometimes we just have to learn to adjust to all the changes happening around us. This is a beautiful one..music has a way of touching the soul like none other. Will have to give the song a listen. Always, Laura

To answer your question, this song was popular at a very sweet time in my life... 1983! "Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You" by Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack!
