Just A Song At Twilight

Once in the dear dead days beyond recall
When on the world the mists began to fall
Out of the dreams that rose in happy throng
Low to our hearts love sang an old sweet song
And in the dusk where fell the firelight gleam
Softly it wove itself into our dream

Just a song at twilight
When the lights are low
And the flickering shadows
Softly come and go
Though the heart be weary
Sad the day and long

Still to us at twilight comes love’s old song
Comes love’s old sweet song
Even today we hear love’s song of yore
Deep in our hearts it dwells forever more
Footsteps may falter, weary grows our way
Still we can hear it at the close of day
So till the end when life’s dim shadows fall
Love will be found the sweetest song of all
