Valerie Dohren (13 January 1947 / Southport)
O could it be that we have known
Such tender love before -
That we have loved each other so
Upon some distant shore.
Within the far and long lost past
Then maybe you were mine -
I held you in my gentle grasp,
Set in another time.
And could it be the Moon above
Has watched our warm embrace,
And seen us kiss so sweetly in
Some other far off place.
Beyond the boundaries of time,
Perchance our love did grow -
For now I love you, as I deem
I loved you long ago.
And thus when darkness steals our souls
I know our love won’t die,
For it will blossom in the dawn
That lights another sky.
Don’t weep my love, my sweetest love,
Forever we shall be
Two hearts united through all time,
