Once in a While (1937)

Once in a while, will you try to give one little thought to me,
Though someone else may be nearer your heart?
Once in a while, will you dream of the moments
I shared with you, moments before we two drifted apart?
In love’s smoldering ember, one spark may remain.
If love still can remember, that spark may burn again.
I know that I’ll be contented with yesterday’s memory,
Knowing you think of me once in a while.
