Shades Of Evening
When evening shadows come to call
And twilight settles in,
Remnants of sunset's vivid hues
Fade away to dim.
Shades of evening overwhelm
Stirring memories once again.
I see your face in shadows
When moonbeams tiptoe in.
When hushed whispers of the breeze
Dance softly through the willows,
It's then I lie here in solitude.
It's then tears fall on satin pillows.
Haunting memories of you linger
Just everywhere, it seems.
And when, at last, I manage sleep,
You're ever present in my dreams.
