The Gilded Leaves of Autumn Sigh

The Gilded Leaves of Autumn Sigh

As the gilded leaves of Autumn sigh,
I’m haunted by the shadow of a long lost love.
I’ll always remember the soft song of a summer breeze…
from golden days when we were carefree butterflies.

I’m haunted by the shadow of a long lost love…
memories of our first kiss still leave me breathless,
from golden days when we were carefree butterflies;
when our silhouettes tangoed in moonlight’s silvery embrace. 

Memories of our first kiss still leave me breathless!
I was enchanted by soft caresses and sparkling red wine.
When our silhouettes tangoed in moonlight’s silvery embrace,
I believed stars would shine until the end of time.

I was enchanted by soft caresses and sparkling red wine…
enthralled as you held me tenderly in your arms.
I believed stars would shine until the end of time;
when I thought you would be forever mine.

Enthralled as you held me tenderly in your arms,
I’ll always remember the soft song of a summer breeze,
when I thought you would be forever mine…
as the gilded leaves of Autumn sigh.
