Shadows Of The Leaves

Life was never easy, but when troubles came along
Together we could take 'em in our stride
Through the good times and the tears, through all the passing years
Night and day, you never left my side
Now the shadows of the leaves on the grass beneath the trees
Are the only things that move across the lawn
As I stand here all alone and read the words upon the stone
I begin to realize you're really gone

Don't think it's just your troubled mind if suddenly you find
That something brushed away the bitter tears you've cried
If you feel something touch your face and disappear without a trace
And leave a warm familiar feeling by your side
It's not the shadows of the leaves in the early autumn breeze
As they blow along the grass that summer dried
Through the good times and the tears, through the autumn of your years
Night and day, I'll never leave your side

Oh, the shadows of the leaves in the early autumn breeze
As they blow along the grass that summer dried
Through the good times and the tears, through all the passing years
Night and day, I'll never leave your side
