a blossom fell

A blossom fell, from off a tree.
It settled softly on the lips you turn to me. 

The gypsies say, and I know why;
a falling blossom only touches lips that lie. 

A blossom fell, and very soon
I saw you kissing someone new beneath the moon. 

I thought you'd love me!
You said you love me.
We planned together, to dream forever. 

The dream has ended, for true love died
the day a blossom fell, and touched two lips that lied.

Lyrics by Howard Barnes, Harold Cornelius, Dominic John, 1954
Nat King Cole most famously; lyrics above on Diana Krall's ALL FOR YOU
Cherry blossom tree, Dallas Arboretum
