John Hess (Fayetteville, N.C.)
There was a Time
There was a time that I would reach to you;
Half way met you would reach back too.
Longing for you I would lean in and kiss;
Lips to lips what a wonderful bliss.
Dazed with desire and emotions a flame;
My life was complete and you were to blame.
Sorrow and pain were things of the past;
My wife you became for all time to last.
No longer alone my life was a dream;
You by my side became our theme.
Often I wondered why you chose me;
So beautiful you are, you're all that I see.
But a fool I am not and we run aground;
Our marriage at stake......will I drown?
My world is ending, come the day that you leave;
My world is ending and it's too hard to believe.
Now days are filled with memories of you;
To a time before, when all things were new.
When in your eyes I was the man;
How loving we where, at the time it began...
