'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
