Lora Colon (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)
There Was A Time
There was a time when time didn't matter,
The time before I met you;
I never cast a backward glance,
Each day was just time renewed
There was time to do a lot of things
But none were important before you;
Time was there, and time was mine,
And time always brought something new
There was a time I dreamed a dream
Of a valley where happiness thrived;
I eagerly searched for the hidden path
But time refused to be my guide
Then one day, time brought you to me
And my dream had been fulfilled;
I loved you the moment I saw you,
It was that day that time stood still
Time made you mine, then reclaimed you,
Now I spend my time alone;
Was time envious of our love?
Time has turned my heart to stone
What did I ever do to time,
O, how could it be so cruel?
If time would bring you back to me
I'd respect it and play by its rule
Never will time be the same again,
I'll waste it and curse it, with pleasure,
But I'll always remember my time with you,
Like a jewel in a box, it's my treasure!
