I Will Remember

By Ron Robinson

Sing me a song I know
I want to remember my past
so in that far off dream
when our futures cross
I will remember

Say to me now
the words I long to hear
speak them softly
for I’ve been listening
since the first day of my birth

I heard you in some far off dream
I can’t remember when
but if our futures cross
I will remember

When all life is gone
and the present is the past
our future will be a thought
that no one remembers.
