Sonata -- Lyrics

[Note: These lyrics are intended to accompany the attached “Sonata” by Chip Davis.] When we first met and you smiled at me, I knew right then we were meant to be, Together always you and me, All through the years. And when we first touched I heard such a symphony -- it was so sweet, As it rose to crescendo our hearts racing skipped a beat, I held you close and we made melodies, All through the years. The years passed so quickly in our harmony of hearts, Sixty years -- seems like yesterday's vow: “til death do us part,” Oh Lord I dared not dream that you’d depart, Our golden years. . [Instrumental] . . Now as your mourners sit in silence listen to your elegy, The somber notes of a sonata set us free. Lifting our broken spirits higher, memories of our desire, For your heart and mine still beat as one. . . . When we first met you smiled at me, so sweet, And I knew right away that we were meant to be complete Together, always, for our love will repeat, All through the years. When we first met and you smiled at me, it was so sweet, And I knew right away that we were meant to be complete Together, always, our love will repeat, All through the, Through the, All through the years ... . . . Written in March 2020 for the Sonata Lyrics Poetry Contest sponsored by James Edward Lee, Sr.) (Lyrics to “Sonata” by Chip Davis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWATdGy-jOA).
