I once imagined life in a different light
lost inside my own illusion I might
have floated upon a wind swept breeze
carry me now to new horizons with ease.
We could feel and smile without any fear
a reprisal seemed distant – affection near
why we would be why was it you and me
summer nights under the stars feeling free.
I watched as sunsets became a final repeat
light in her eyes, her smile, passion is sweet
Would our lives ever measure up to this day
when lost we would alone and look away.
Oh to find sweet peace in the beauty of love
when all around, heart and soul is only love.
