I sent my true love on his way
Without one backward look,
But now my heart goes wandering
Along the road he took.
And I remember little things
I had not known before
A smile as quick as lifted wings,
The gay silk scarf he wore.
Such simple things to haunt me so
Through mists of lonely tears,
Yet I shall seek for them I know
Through long and empty years.
