When the Cricket Sings

 

I will not mourn you or wish you were here

I値l have my own picnic and not shed a tear.

 

When the lone cricket sings his sad lonely song,

I will not mourn you but I値l sing along.

 

And still all my dreams that float on the breeze

Fly with the sparrow above all the trees--

 

Far past the willow, beyond the pine,

I致e got my dreams and they池e all mine.

 

But who am I kidding, I grieve in my soul
And every last teardrop has taken its toll.

 

When the lone cricket sings his sad lonely song

I値l remember you then and I値l sing along.

 

With every sunset comes my Evensong

I pray you are well love with each coming dawn.

 

And when the lone cricket sings his saddest of songs

I値l remember you then as I sing along
