PICTURES FROM THE PAST
I stand again at lovers leap
With a heart thatís beating fast,
And in my mind the memories creep
And I see pictures from the past.
I see again a maiden fair
With hair of auburn hue,
And I tongue tied can only stare
With thoughts of I love you.
I loved the ground on which she trod
With her figure fair and trim,
While in my prayers I prayed to God,
Though I thought my chances then were slim.
But perseverance paved the path
Though faint the heart may be,
And looking back in aftermath
Future plans were plain to see.
Looking back on lifeís display
For the dye has long been cast,
That girl is still as fair today
As in those pictures from the past.
