i haven't forgotten you

I haven't forgotten you, dearie, the shine of your hair and all. It wasn't so easy and cheery to leave you, as I recall. I haven't forgotten the autumn, the rustle of birches, the night; And though the days were shorter the moonlight was long and bright. You whispered these words in my ear: The years and the dreams will be gone, you'll go with another, my dear, and leave me all on my own'. That lime standing there, in flower, reminds my emotion anew the way I would tenderly shower those beautiful flowers on you. My heart will be warm, sad and sorry, in love, remembering well you, friend, as a fanciful story of love with another girl.
