You



Ebony black
Heavenly blue
Peaches and cream
I remember you

The warmth of your heart
The warmth of your smile
The warmth of your arms
The warmth of your dawn

Silvered ebony
And heavenly blue
Weathered but true
I still remember you

Your heart is still warm
Your smile still the same
In my arms of yet
As your sun starts to set

Heavenly blue closes forever
Warm smile and warm arms
Gone to the nether
But you, forgotten never
As that warm heart
Now warms the heaven

Ebony black
Heavenly blue
Peaches and cream
I temember you
