_______
 
The sun is sinking low in the sky above Ashokan.
The pines and the willows know soon we will part.
There's a whisper in the wind of promises un spoken,
And love that will always remain in my heart.
My thoughts will return to the sound of your laughter,
The magic of moving as one, And a time we'll remember long ever after
The moonlight and music and dancing are done.
