Go Softly

 

 

Go Softly
            into the velvet night
                        my love
ere the weary sun opens

            it's blood-shot eyes
                        and sees you gone
once again...away from me.

Go softly now
            slip away in the dark
                        so you don't see me cry
into the sunken pillow
            where once you lie.

So go softly my love
            and lay the rose by my face
                    where the dew can mingle
with my tears, reminding me of your
            sweet kiss....your smile.

 

Go softly now
      leaving the imprint from your body
              to stay beside me ...for awhile
to remind me of the past
          so I can dream our love will last
forever wherever you go...
                        for I will need you so.

Softly go,
        tip-toe through my dreams
            leaving no footprints there,
no times for me to grieve
as you were truly here,
then go softly......
