Like a breeze blowing backwards
through this life of mine
I journeyed back last night
to a special place and time

Like a breeze blowing backwards
I heard you say my name,
the sound went to my ears
yet touched my heart the same

Like a breeze blowing backwards
through my memory
I saw your face- I felt your hands
reaching out for me

Like a breeze blowing backwards
the songs danced on air
whimiscal and feather light
my soul I did bare

Like a breeze blowing backwards
Time's ocean has been part,
so that I may wonder through
the memories in my heart
