Patricia Gale

For awhile you were mine.....

We danced on the billowing white clouds
Our feet as light as feathers down

Heaven was found in my heart that night
As twinkling star light mesmerized our souls

We floated with the angels
And painted the midnight sky

Eyes closed
With hearts wide opened

The music played or’ and or’
As we were lost in each other eyes

We drifted like sails open the open sea
Gentle breezes softly caressing our beings

So close we held each other
Our hearts beating to the sound of our names

Perfect syllables formed from your lips
As you whispered, I love you my darling

Yes you were mine for a little while
Forever held with in my dreams

    I was touched by this great work of yours not only because it's marvellous itself,
    but because it reminded me of my super favorite song 'You were mine' performed by THE DIXIE CHICKS.....'when for so long, you were mine', as it goes. (Report) Reply
