A Time to Remember

A Time to Remember

There was a time
Given to me for just a short while
When I felt I could fly
Transported over the sea of delight.

It took you and I by surprise
Ill prepared for such a flight
But in that special time
There was only you and I.

The winds took us up high
Above the clouds of white
Erasing the world from our eyes
To a place of light that couldn't be denied.

Into view came an isle
Upon which we rested a while
Reveling in the warm sunshine
Listening to the changing tide.

A beautiful dream for a while
Our love needed no reasons why
But grounding it, had to be denied
For it could only live in another place and time.

And after all this time
A certain thought in my mind
Brings your face back in its eye
And I remember the time I could fly.
