Theme: Remembrance

When Autumn Leaves Were Falling ...

In all your merriments
Keep this in your mind
Once I sang songs
When the autumn leaves were falling.
The grasses were dry
The woodland was empty
Unnoticed by any
And neglected by all
I sang all alone
When the autumn leaves were falling.
When traveling in day light
Remember I traveled in the dark
Holding a lone candle
When the call came from beyond
I left on a raft
And I sang my songs
When the autumn leaves were falling.
