Love is like a dying ember;
Only memories re- main.
And/ thru the ages I'll re-member
Blue eyes cryin' in the rain.
For many there is one person who is the love of their life. When their mate dies, it seems like everything that remains brings them a memory of their love.
Incidentally, Blue Eyes Cryin' in the Rain was the last song Elvis Presley played in the early morning on his piano in Graceland before he died later on August 16, 1977.
