My thoughts go back to a heavenly dance A moment of bliss we spent Our hearts were filled with a song of romance As into the night we went And sang to our hearts' content The song is ended But the melody lingers on You and the song are gone But the melody lingers on The night was splendid And the melody seemed to say "Summer will pass away Take your happiness while you may" There 'neath the light of the moon We sang a love song that ended too soon The moon descended And I found with the break of dawn You and the song had gone (Contributed by Shelley Botka)
