I Shall Remember Still


I Shall Remember Still

Our waking moments fly, gone before us

I have to say goodnight as the sun sets

As evening falls, there is a gleam of gold in the grey

Do not grieve that it is over, I shall be with the stars soon

And doubtless, I shall remember still

Do not turn your head away, the night is falling fast

The world changes under my hand

Be sure that out of the darkness

There will be a place of light where shall I find you

As evening falls, the light withdrawn

Into the ancient net of time I have cast my lot

Bring me roses and jasmine, wet with dew

A mist is driving down, is that rain I hear?

You will be in me as the eternal moods

My soul goes forth into peace

And doubtless, I shall remember still

As I fall into the cradle of sleep, stand by my side

The path I must travel is lit by a full moon

Look back when you leave and know that I will follow

The wind works against us in the dark

Roses and gold, jasmine and tears

Look out upon the stars, my love, there are things that have no end

When I go back to the earth, leave all these things unsaid

I have to say goodnight

The air is like a butterfly, light and lazuline

And now one quietly solemn thought

We have spoken of love so many ways

You know that I will stay with you

Here falls no darkness

I feel my face in the wind, in the sun

And the warmth of the day

Yet I feel gentle snow whisper about me

Shades of night are rolling in, I fall soon into night

Stand here by my side, see, I return

In halls of sleep I will wander home, passing through ancient walls

Within my hand I hold my heart, I bring it back to where it lives

Look out upon the stars, my love, grieve not for the invisible

Doubtless, I shall remember still
