And all alone, I sit and stare.
As ghosts of bygone days drift past,
I rock in my old rocking chair.
My dreams are all of long ago,
Of golden sunshine, skies of blue.
Back in those days you loved me so,
Your love was strong and pure and true.
Why did you leave me all alone?
Do not remember, yet I must.
My heart is frozen, turned to stone,
My dreams have crumbled into dust.
I was young and filled with pride,
Could not forget, could not forgive.
And though you pleaded, begged and cried,
With all your sins I could not live.
Why could I never be your wife?
Was it so dark, was there no light?
What made me drive you from my life?
Your sins were small, was it just spite?
Sometimes I see you in my mind,
And wonder where you are, and how.
Perhaps you’ve left it all behind,
And sing the songs of angels now.
My foolish heart, why did I ever,
Close the door, drive us apart?
Oh, how I wish that I had never,
Listened to my foolish heart.
I look into my foolish heart,
But only emptiness is there.
I close my eyes and slowly start,
To rock in my old rocking chair.
