Lost time

by cricketjeff on February 19, 2009.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

You brought me smiles when life was turning blue
And scrubbed the sky of clouds that threatened rain
I want to feel your tender lips again
A day is lost if it’s not spent with you
      You bring the spring and everything is new
      Without you winter lasts for all the year
      But when you smile the summertime is near
      A day is lost if it’s not spent with you
I wonder what your love will bring me to
To happiness or just a memory
Of all the moments that you gave to me
A day is lost if it’s not spent with you
      You brought me smiles when life was turning blue
      A day is lost if it’s not spent with you
