lingers on

and though the years are past
and my memory of your face and smile
has faded since you’ve gone

the soundtrack of our story
still plays in my heart

and I smile as the warmth
of all we had and were
envelops me
and I sway in time
underneath the stars in the twilight sky
barefoot in the grass

thankful that
the melody lingers on
