'Twas when I lost you


'Twas when I lost you that I found you

When my heart woke up at last

And saw you in the light that I once

Saw you in the past


A light that shone so brightly and then

One night it dimmed like the moon

That dips behind a cloud

Our love was wearing thin


No heat remained to speak of

No ember could I find

Rose ashes in a cold fire grate

A vague memory on my mind


I woke to find you weeping in the

Half-light before dawn

I couldn't breath I couldn't think

How could I be so wrong?


I held you to my body I asked if I

Should go? You shook

Your head and rolled instead and

Snuggled up real close


'Twas when I lost you that I found you

When the scales fell from my eyes

When I found what I'd been looking for

Was here with me all the time
