For Emily Whenever I May Find Her
Simon & Garfunkel Lyrics


What I dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets
past the shop displays down
I heard cathedral bells
Tripping down the alley ways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me
Your cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields
of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
Oh I love you girl
Oh I love you

What a dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets down
Past the shop displays
I heard cathedral bells
Tripping down the alleyways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me, your
Cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
Oh, I love you, girl
Oh, I love you

What I dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets
past the shop displays down
I heard cathedral bells
Tripping down the alley ways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me
Your cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields
of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke and felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears
Oh I love you girl
Oh I love you

Sitting here with tears streaming down my face. Just listened to this for the first time in decades. Not only did I remember every word to sing along with the gorgeous music, but it transported me back to when this album first came out, to when I was young and pretty and (above all) healthy. I became disabled in my twenties. I am now nearly 70 and all the usual passages and accomplishments of most lives, all the things I hoped to have, have been devoured by my illnesses. But I am still here and I have managed to cobble together a life for myself despite everything, even though it's nowhere near the life I hoped I would have. It is a tribute to S&G's genius that I still find as much joy and hope and beauty in their music now as I did half a century ago.

@K Shred yep. I agree and same with me. Kathy's Song is like the theme song through my life.😢♥️

Amy Crunch

You're still pretty, Kate, come on. We all feel it. ❤️

Jerome Taperman

Paul Simon is at least as significant a poet as Bob Dylan.

Rick Snyder

You are part of a great number of people who are in the same boat - songs such as this evoking strong memories of a time when we were young, vital and with our life ahead of us. Now, looking back at a time when our bodies are giving out on us we are moved by the simple beauty of this music. God bless you Kate!

Susan Andrew

I was so moved by what you wrote here, Kate. I haven't had disability to cope with, but a lot of other difficulties which have led to my life also not being anywhere near the life I had hoped to have. I haven't dealt with this as effectively as you have.

Indeed, this is one of the most beautiful songs ever written.

What amazing words. They touched my soul and let me hope for better days....

@DuckDuckGo Ismuchbetter it’s totally “pressed in organdy”. Referring to the dream he had, not the singer. It’s a poetical license that conjures up visions of a precious antique dress, pressed between layers in a hope chest, possibly a flower preserved or pressed there as well. Listen again. ;)
