Where The Nightingales Flew - Poem by Lora Colon

I walk through the woods in the moonlight
Where I used to walk with you,
I hear the trees whispering your name
In the woods where the nightingales flew

The trees heard the promise you made me,
The love you swore was true;
They witnessed it all that evening
In the woods where the nightingales flew

We kissed and pledged our love forever,
But you said that wouldn't do;
So you carved a heart with our initials
In the woods where the nightingales flew

The trees rejoiced in our romance,
I sensed it as we passed through;
They raised their leafy boughs to the sky
In the woods where the nightingales flew

Our laughter still echoes in the branches,
And our kisses are still fresh as the dew;
Me and the trees remember it well
In the woods where the nightingales flew

Over the years I forgot my promise,
Indifference caused me to be untrue;
I just heard they found your lifeless body
In the woods where the nightingales flew

Forgive me, my love, for what I've done,
If I could just make it up to you -
Haunt me, torture me 'til my spirit joins yours
In the woods where the nightingales flew

Many years have passed since we walked here,
But I still feel it, that happiness we knew;
I'll stay here 'til the life leaves my body,
Here in the woods where the nightingales flew
