Choirs in the night wake me


M A Heathcote

Choirs in the night wake me
Like tinkling leafs in the rain
Somehow the wind must take me
Carry me dreaming—again!

To that figment of a memory
That always remains the same
To my darling I’ll love now and forever
Though she’s—already—forgotten my name.

Choirs in the night wake me
Like those creatures filled with fear
Its then I looked around the darkness
And know that you’re not here.

It fills me with sadness
It fills me with lots of negative tears
Though I have loved you darling
I haven’t been crying like this in years.

Choirs in the night haunt me
Shackle me with pain
Though I have loved you always
You don’t recall my pet name.

The wind it is a howling
Like a tempest in a storm
And in my hearts empty calling
My soul a shipwreck crashes to the shore.

If only we’d been faithful
To the feelings in our hearts
Then maybe we’d been much more able
To finish what we start.
