THESE YEARS, by Jennifer Porter            


These eyes, how beloved

How adored this face I see

How the lines mark acts of kindness

And years of worry spent on me


He smiles, and my heart breaks

How could I ever have caused him pain

Numbing losses, the smallest wins

Were all I ever gained


I want to savor him forever

Oh Time help me find

A way to be forgiving

For these years have been unkind

You know these years

Have been unkind


The night hums in the moonlight

Silver wings they fill the sky

With him beside me watching stars fall

Blazing light from years gone by


I want to be with him forever

Oh Time, help me hold

A way to be forgiving

For these years they took their toll

You know these years

They took their toll
