When you come to the end of a perfect day
and you sit alone with your thoughts,
While the chimes ring out with a carol gay
for the joy that the day has brought.
Do you think what the end of a perfect day
can mean to tired heart?
When the sun goes down with a flaming ray,
and the dear friends have to part.
Well this is the end of a perfect day
and the end of a journey too.
But it leaves a thought that is big and strong,
With a wish that is kind and true.
For memory has painted this perfect day
with colours that never fade
and we find at the end of a perfect day
the soul of a friend we've made.
