This is either depressing or wistful, depending on my mood.

I remember springtime and the hope of days to come
And I remember laughing in the clean light of the sun
And dreaming of the beauty, this shining life would hold
And sorrow could not live within the dreaming

And I remember summer came, as promised by the spring
I ran through the brightness and the heat that made my heart's-blood sing
And nights were filled with magic, and the stars' eternal light
And the sweet, compelling secrets of the darkness

I remember autumn, bittersweet, as leaves began to fall
All red and gold, one last brief fire, before the end of all
And I saw the light was fading, and the quiet settling in
And all the world was hushed before the winter

And now I look to winter, and the thin, grey light of dawn
The landscape, desolate and dim, the colors pale and drawn
No fire will warm my heart, no blanket hold me close
Like the arms of lovers I once had in summer

(I usually repeat 1st verse)
