Many, many years ago,
I saw a girl on a crowded sidewalk.
All kinds of lost she looked.
Dazed, perplexed, scared and confused.
But before I could wonder more,
A man stepped up and held her hand
And she suddenly smiled, all radiant and warm
Like she finally had the world in her palm.
This is it! I thought. This is love,
Without which you’re lost.
Yet time went on and the world taught
Many more lessons that love I forgot.
I saw hurt, I saw lies, I saw betrayal and heartbreak.
I saw pain, I saw wounds,
I saw my reflection damaged beyond repair.
Till there came a man with a light so bright,
It took all I had to be able to gaze upon his face.
But I looked and remembered in an instant then
That long lost memory.
This is it, this is what love is,
Without which I was lost, so lost.
But now I am found again.
