Friday 1st July

“My thoughts go back to a heavenly dance
A moment of bliss we spent
Our hearts were filled with a song of romance
As into the night we went
And sang to our hearts’ content

The song is ended
But the melody lingers on
You and the song are gone
But the melody lingers on

The night was splendid
And the melody seemed to say
“summer will pass away
Take your happiness while you may”

There ‘neath the light of the moon
We sang a love song that ended too soon

The moon descended
And I found with the break of dawn
You and the song had gone
But the melody lingers on.”

Song composed by Irving Berlin, lyrics by Leda Boehner, 1927

Your song may have ended
But the memories do linger on
In the words and melodies.

And although every song ends
That doesn’t mean
We shouldn’t enjoy the music
Over, and over again.

Love you my sweetheart
To the moon and back
Round the planets
And all the stars.
Love you my Angel
Always have, always will.
