1. These Years

From the recording These Years


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
