Charade

Halloween 2023

Charade

by Henry Mancini


When we played our charade

We were like children posing


Playing at games,

acting out names


Guessing the parts we played.


Oh, what a hit we made


We came on

next to closing


Best on the bill


Lovers until


Love left the masquerade.


Fate seemed to pull the strings

I turned

and you were gone.


While from the darkened wings

The music box

played on . . .


Sad little serenade


Song of my heart’s

composing


I hear it

still


I always will


Best on the bill


Charade.
