Daydream

Where did all the flowers go?
Falling leaves in colors show
Spring is but a memory.
Distant dreams come over me.

Where do all the rivers flow?
Autumn leaves in colors know.
Yesterday is just a dream.
Can you hear it whispering?

I can feel the afterglow
Of a time so long ago
When the sun could only shine
Beyond the shadows of my mind.

Yesterday is just a dream.
Can you hear it whispering?
Love is but a memory.
Distant dreams come over me.
