I'm still at this songwriting business, just had a long dry spell (and a hot one too) Then these lyrics were sent to me to put to music and I was so touched emotionally by these lyrics that I just had to write what I felt would carry the message in them. The lyrics were written by Wayne Stegall so the music is my only contribution. This was all done in BIAB using RealTracks. Wayne has granted me permission to post the lyrics.

My Last Autumn With You

A cold lonely breeze...blows through the trees
Telling me they'll miss you too
My heartache must show...how else would they know
This is my last autumn with you

Chorus:
Yes, This is my last autumn with you
So many dreams will never come true
Like our little girls laughter as she plays in her room
Or showing our boy the ole man-in-the-moon
I live with a heart that's breaking in two
For this is my last autumn with you

The leaves will turn green...once again in the spring
Flowers will bloom again too
And those I will save...to lay on your grave
For this is my last autumn with you

Yes, this is my last autumn with you
so many dreams will never come true
Like our little girls laughter as she plays in her room
Or showing our boy that ole man-in-the-moon
I live with a heart that's breaking in two
For this is my last autumn with you

Hi Val,

I congratulate you on a fine effort. You've written a very beautiful and haunting melody. I think your choice of waltz is a terrific fit for both the sentiment of the lyrics and the melody. I'd love to hear it sung.

All the best,
Noel

Val,

Very beautiful music to go with the lyrics.

With a lot of seniors on this site songs like this touch
us more than most folks.

Thank you for your work and sharing with us.

Thank you all for your comments. Just realized that I forgot to take out the count-in before I made the MP3 to post to soundclick. Oh well, I will be re-posting it to Soundclick when the vocal demo is made by the daughter of the lyric writer.

Val

Lovely and haunting melody. Beautiful. Lyrics are great too. I can't wait to hear the two together.
