Like autumn leaves are falling
My heart is throbbing on slow
In memories deep down calling
Like leaves in its golden glow
With you my heart is standing
In giving its heavy beats play
In our thoughts and remanding
With rustic roads of grimy gray

My heart is always finding
What dreams may have forgot?
Of roads of lonesome winding
And those footsteps never trot
Oh love my sweet forever
These days are now in dim
Those words of ours clever
I‘d hear in deep down brim

Our roses that have plunged
To wintry cold now outside
Forever in hearts are challenged
As tomorrow on earth will glide
My love is still with you
In thoughts you want to hear
And each my song is true
From me to you – quite near!
