Lyrics from one of her favorite songs..
The snowflakes fall as winter comes
And time just seems to fly
Is it the loneliness in me that makes me want to cry
My heart is sad like a morning dove that?s lost its mate in flight
Hear the coooing of his lonely heart through the stillness of the night
Whispering pines, whispering pines, tell me is it so
Whispering pines, whispering pines, you?re the one who knows
My darlin? is gone, ohh she?s gone
And I need your sympathy
Whispering pines send my baby back to me
See that squirrel up in the tree, his mate there on the ground
Hear their barking call of love, for the happiness they?ve found
Is my love still my love, ohh this I gotta know
Send the message by the wind, because I love her so
