Memories

Every time I sit alone
and think about the past
I find it hard to realize
some things can never last

Years of tears and lonely nights
have passed before my eyes
those memories of love gone by
keep burning up inside

But when I look into your eyes
they sparkle and they shine
the taste of love upon your lips
is the sweetest of all wines

You’ve shown the sorrow in my heart
the happiness it needs
and filled my soul right from the start
with loves own golden seeds

We’re living in a world I know
that’s full of hate and war
but without love the richest are
the poorest of the poor

Although our lives are full
of cruel and harsh reality
the richest are the poor of those
been hurt but let love be
