One day we walked along the sand
One day in early spring
You held a piper in your hand
To mend its broken wing
Now I'll remember many a day and many a lonely mile
The echo of a piper's song, the shadow of a smile

The shadow of your smile
When you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn

Look into my eyes, my love, and see
All the lovely things you are to me

Our wistful little star,
It was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I

Now when I remember Spring
And every little lovely thing
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile
