Think of me

アーサー・ラッカム 「灰かぶり(シンデレラ)」
Arthur Rackham, Ashenputtel, 1916.

Think of me
Think of me, fondly, when we've said goodbye
Remember me
Once in a while - please promise me you'll try

When you find that, once agian, you long
to take you heart back and be free
if you ever find a moment, spare a thought for me

We never said our love was evergreen
or as unchanging as the sea
But if you can still remember
Stop and think of me

Think of all the things we've shared and seen
Don't think about the things which might have been

Think of me
Think of me waking, silent and resigned
Imagine me
trying too hard to put you from my mind

Recall those days
Look back on all those times
Think of the things we'll never do
There will never be a day
When I won't think of you

Can it be?
Can it be Christine?
Long ago,
it seems so long ago
How young and innocent we were
She may not remember me
But I remember her


Flowers fade
The fruits of summer fade
They have their seasons,so do we
But please promise me
that sometimes
You will think of me!

Jean Beraud, The Lobby of the Paris Opera.
