"Think of Me with Kindness" as written by and Derek Victor Shulman Philip Arthur Shulman....
Why am I using words, no more to say without you
Close the door, put out the lights and go.
Late in the night, in the night your shadow falls between us.
Nevermore, never know.
There, memories are sorrow,
When there's no tomorrow.
Sleep while the sweet sorrow wakes my daydream;
Sleep while you think of me with kindness, please remember former days.
Sweet the song that once we sang, the silent parting ways.
And you know, and you know,
And you know, long ago when first we made our promise -
Empty words, I wonder did you know -
The laugh that love could not forgive,
Is gone and tells no more to live,
And we who look in beauty's love;
Must now, through all, look back on before -
The tears that I first cried, no more;
Your love has come and gone, no more.
And we who look in beauty's love
Must now through all think back on before.
Sleep while the sweet sorrow wakes my daydream
Sleep while you think of me with kindness, please remember former days.
And you know, and you know.
And you know, when we two parted in tears
and silence
past the days, the parting ways.
Fare thee well, fare thee well, you that was once dear to me.
Think of me with kindness
Think of me.

    General CommentAnother Minnear masterpiece... I believe this piece was written by Kerry while still in attendance at the Royal Academy of Music. Although it's more than likely a song about a broken love relationship, it has taken on a different meaning for me ever since a relative of mine described it as his own, personal "farewell" to a close friend who had passed away. This made me think differently about the "parted in tears & silence".

    The song is particularly moving when the Shulman bros. first present their horn section.
