I Remember

Story Behind The Song

As a teenager, I fell in love with a young lady who I met while walking home after a Jazz band performance at the Washington Monument. I was tired, carrying my trumpet and my flugel horn, not thinking about anything until I heard her call my name from across the street. We became a couple, and we seemed to do everything together. We would spend time at Malcolm X Park in DC. It was one night at Malcolm X Park that we discovered Serenity in a very special and endearing way. I will forever remember that one special night.

I Remember
By Edgar M Wise

I remember walking home from school
When I heard you call my name
I walked over and started to talk
And my life was not the same

Next day after we marched the parade
We met at MC Donalds
Walking home you were holding my hand
And in love we would fall

Honey I remember the time in the park
Making love beneath the statue
Holding hands walking home in the dark
Was the thing we liked to do

I think about when you became my wife
We walked home quick as the rain fell
Had a daughter and she changed our lives
And our love began to swell

We grew older and we grew apart
I never dreamed that I would lose you
And still I cherish those times we both shared
All the things we would do

And yes I remember the time in the park
Making love beneath the statue
holding hands walking home in the dark
Was the thing we liked to do

The gentle breeze blowing soft in the trees
And the rain drops on your face
I remember those times in our lives
Father time can not erase
