Echo Call

In the softness of a silvery night when all is pale by the moon's blanketing light i heard a swallow call your name Somewhere out in the dark beyond the trees in leaf and bark i swear i heard your name Underneath this blanket sheet I think back to when we would meet somewhere in this wonderland bed underneath the pillowcase i could see your smiling face all bright in this wonderland bed we held each other oh so tight together each others' for the night i swear i heard the angels call i kissed your eyes like butterflies you cried your sighs into long goodbyes and with you gone the stars did fall gone from here within this bed you've left me with the life you led and now i see you in the mist looking for the little girl i missed you have fled into the night beyond my reach and out of sight no more kisses to lay me down just a voiceless echo sound will you be there ever more hiding where the angels soar or will you come back and visit me here in our home among the trees i hope you do and wish you will i hear your voice and my heart slows still i gave you all i had to give but it was i who had to live you went away to heaven's arms gracing god with your gentle charms and here i wait until the day that your love will come this way
