The Last Waltz

September 27, 2018 Maria 0 Comments


In the Corn Exchange
The band played
“Now is the hour”
We danced the last waltz
I walked her home
We kissed goodbye
On the troopship
I sailed away
Six hundred nights
I dreamed
Of the last waltz
And the goodbye kiss
On a troopship
I sailed home
In the Corn Exchange
The band played
I didn’t dance
The last waltz
I walked home alone
