Melancholy Waltz

In the still, darkness of early morning
I awake with a song of hope
Still fresh on my lips

My heart filled with the light of love
Never known, until we were one
Consuming my entire being 
Every thought, each and every breath

My~~~ memories dance~~~~~~

You and I touching hands, touching hearts
Touching each other's very souls 
As we dance in the pure joy of our love

Slowly, dawn brings light 
And I realize the source of my pain,
The reality... you are no longer mine

I seek to cast intruding thoughts aside,
Desperate to linger in the love dance 
For just a few precious moments more
But the music has ended, and I know

Today's hours will lead my body through the day,
Waltzing alone to the sullen beat of my heart
