Wishing that I could turn back time. Relive the happy moments with loved ones. Be the girl I once was.
A maiden sat in the sunset glow
Of the shadowy, beautiful Long Ago,
That we see through a mist of tears.
She sat and dreamed, with lips apart,
With thoughtful eyes and a beating heart,
Of the mystical future years;
And brighter far than the sunset skies
Was the vision seen by the maiden’s eyes.
There were castles built of the summer air, And beautiful voices were singing there, In a soft and floating strain.There were skies of azure and fields of green, With never a cloud to come between, And never a thought of pain; There was the music, sweet as the silvery notesThat flow from a score of thrushes’ throats.
But the castles built of the summer wind
I have vainly sought. I only find
Shadows, all grim and cold; –
For I was the maiden who thought to see
Into the future years, – Ah, me!
And I am grey and old.
My dream of earth was as fair and bright
As my hope of heaven is to-night.
Dreams are but dreams at the very best,
And the friends I loved lay down to rest
With their faces hid away.
They had furrowed brows and snowy hair,
And they willing laid one day.
A shadow came over my vision scene
As the clouds of sorrow came in between.
The hands that I thought to clasp are crossed,
The lips and the beautiful eyes are lost,
And I seek them all in vain.
The gushes of melody, sweet and clear,
And the floating voices, I do not hear,
But only a sob of pain;
And the beating hearts have paused to rest.
Ah! dreams are but dreams at the very best.
