I NEVER LOST YOU














I Never Lost You


I never lost you
In the sea or sand
In the sky as clouds rolled by
Letting go my hand.

I never lost you
In the dusk or dawn
In the dark or daydream
Noticing you'd gone.

I never lost you
In a crowded place
In a dim lit restaurant
With shadows on your face.

I never lost you
On a moonlight swim
Watching waves take you away
Held prisoner at their whim.

I never lost you
On a busy street
Walking fast ahead of me
With others yet to meet.

I never lost you
In the shining snow
Clutching love tight to my heart
Not wanting to let go.

I never lost you
In sheets of dreamless sleep
Watching your back turned from me
With no love left to keep.

I never lost you
Your dark eyes gave no sign
And though your body sleeps by me still,
You were never mine.
