Left to play out not halted by emotion

A song filters through the cold night air

Lifted by the tune on wings of elation

Till words spark memories buried with care

Walking the streets in steps well-worn

Simple visions flash past unsighted eyes

Taking me back on a cloud of frost

To a time and a girl that lived and died

Stirring from sleep to a world I knew well

In the arms of love and the grips of romance

No thoughts of a future beyond where I lay

Everything I needed in a single glance

Leaving me walking alone in the cold

The songs end came no notes left to play

But for a brief time I recalled how I’d felt

A smile not forced for that song will stay
