And I Lost You

Yesterday you were quietly setting me right
My friend and my lover, my wife and my light
You were comfort and ease
You were laughter and tease
You were memories of
All the joy and the love
Once a fire then a glow
That continued to grow
Til a part of you left
And I lost you.
                          
Each morning I eagerly look in your eyes
But the spark that I hope for is gone and it lies
In some far-a-way place where I cannot go
And itís then that I know
That Iíve lost you
You were comfort and ease
You were laughter and tease
You were memories of
All the joy and the love
Once a fire then a glow
That continued to grow
Til a part of you left and I lost you.

 

I Know Youíre In There Somewhere

I know youíre in there somewhere
The you that once was you
Deep inside youíre hiding there
The you that once I knew
I see a faint light in your eye
I reach for it in vain
It lives a moment then it dies
And you are gone again
I know not what itís like for you
In that place youíve gone to stay
What things you see what things you do
But I ache for yesterday.
