A RACE TO THE SEASON OF LOVE

Written by: Berton Marrega

I RACED THROUGH THE SEASONS OF TIME
LOOKING FOR ROMANCE, I HAPPENED TO HAVE LOCATED DESTINY
OPENING MY EYES I COULD SEE A RAY OF HOPE
PRICKING MY EARS I COULD HEAR THE TUNES OF PERFECT LOVE
MY TIMING WAS FORTUNATE AND I STOOD TO FIND THE BEST

TIME FAVORED MY SOLEMN HOPES FOR LIFE, 
HOW VERY WONDERFUL WERE THE THINGS I HAD KEPT FOR MY QUEEN TO COME, 
OH! YES THIS TIME MY HEART WAS TEMPTED FOR PATIENCE
THE DARKEST HOUR IS ALWAYS NEAREST THE DAWN, 
THIS FACT OF OLD DAYS PROVED THE TRUTH OF MY CIRCUMSTANCE
LASTLY CONTENTMENT I FOUND WHEN I SAW MY STAR COMING INTO MY SIGHT

SHE WAS MEASURED TO LOVE AND SHE DESERVED MY LIFE
THE ARC ON HER SMILING CHEEKS REVEALED HER ASSENTING THOUGHTS ABOUT LOVING ME
AS SOON AS SHE GENTLY MOTIONED INTO MY HEART WITH TENDERNESS, 
AN EXPECTATION OF WHAT I DESIRED WAS SOON TO COME TO SATISFACTION  

FOR MANY YEARS SHE PAUSED HER TIME TO LOVE, 
WAITING FOR ONE TRUE LOVE SHE KILLED HER TIME FOR ME
IT APPEARED SHE MISSED MORE IN HER DAYS
BUT AS PROSPEROUS AS SHE COULD BE, SHE NEVER HAD TO REGRET HER LUCK
THERE WAS BUT ONE MAN WHO GOT THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IT MEANT TO LOVE
THE SAME SEASON CAME IN HER TIME AND ALL WAS LUCKY TO HER AND HER KING.
