Until the Night

There were times

When she wondered

If it had all been a dream

That day he went away

She had stood just looking

As the tears flowed

The car becoming smaller

And then she was alone

They had had the kind of love

That some only dream of

Together through thick and thin

Their best nights

The ones they spent alone

Romantic and dreamy

Idyllic mornings

With lingering thoughts

Of the love they had shared

No signs of a storm

Nothing but clear skies

The time she spent away from him

Made her daydream

Of the night

When they would meet again

Then he was there

And everything was alright

Kisses and I love yous

Quiet dinners

By candlelight

Then he’d changed

Silences stretched into eternity

Nothing to be said

No smiles, no tender words

Then the day he’d said

He had some thinking to do

Something about all their tomorrows

Something about remembered sorrows

She ached in silence

For a whole week long

Then came the letter

You were my morning

You were my night

Nothing mattered till we were together again

Left all my yesterdays behind

Still loving you forever

Till the night

When we meet again my love

Sometimes a love is visited once in a lifetime and is placed in the past. Sometimes it is best. Sometimes some can revisit it again, but in my experience, something or someone must change or the relationship is doomed to failure yet again.

Glad you enjoyed this Ruby. Billy has lots of inspirational songs. This was from his younger days.

Yes, love does take a lot of give and take Robin.
