Songs for Meggy and Robert

It’s the last summer
With magic for me
It shines in your eyes
Such sweet memories
Will always remind me
Of dreams that you whispered
I hear them call softly
As sweet falling rain

Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again
Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again

The heat in the cornfield
The haze in the meadows
The shimmer of poppies
A wondrous glow
We lay together
The tears of tomorrow
Strewn before us as
Loves’ favours fair well

Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again
Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again

Our eyes a’ glistening
The tears not forgotten
You held my hand lightly
As green turned to gold
We strolled through the meadows
Sweet thoughts for tomorrow
Horizons herald
Dark thunders roll

Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again
Softly softly sweet falling rain
My lips remember – come here again

Now as you lay fallen
In sweet meadows past
My eyes are opened
To the things unasked
Our love lies bleeding
Hearts ease the pain
My love I remember
The sweet falling rain

Softly softly sweet falling rain
My heart remembers – I’ll come here again
Softly softly sweet falling rain
My heart remembers – I’ll come here again
