HAND FULL OF ASHES (Connie Dycus) Connie Dycus - 1960 The postman smiled and handed me your letter With trembling hands I opened it with pride As I read each fabled sentence that you wrote me My broken heart fell all apart inside The letter told me you had wed another You asked me to forgive you if I can All the dreams that we have made and planned together I now hold them in the palm of my hand I'm burning all the letters that you wrote me I stand and burn the pages one by one I'm keeping all the ashes from your letters Just a memory for the damage you have done Here I stand with a hand full of ashes Ashes from your letters I have burned All I have is a hand full of ashes From a page of life that I can never turn Here I stand with a hand full of ashes Ashes from your letters I have burned All I have is a hand full of ashes From a page of life that I can never turn (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2017)
