Writer(s):There were shadows on the sand closely mingled,Just two lovers by a moonlit sea,While I watched I thought of you and I tingled,For they kissed the way you did with me.Then the shadows on the sand came much nearer,And the moon was like a spotlight then,There was one familiar face showing clearer,It was you, I couldn’t look again.I felt so sad, there you were with someone new,I felt so glad, when I found it wasn’t true.For the shadows on the sand seemed to break up,And I looked around me with a start,When the pounding of my heart made me wake up.>from a dream that nearly broke my heart.
