I’ll be seeing you

In all the old familiar places

That this heart of mine embraces

All day through.


In that small café;

The park across the way;

The children’s carousel;

The chestnut trees; the wishin well.


I’ll be seeing you

In every lovely summer’s day;

In every thing that’s light and gay.

I’ll always think of you that way.


I’ll find you

In the morning sun

And when the night is new.

I’ll be looking at the moon,

But I’ll be seeing you.
