Was it ever mine for the taking
A love so tender and true
Did I have a right to thus try
To confine you to the universe
Of my heart letting you roam
Bare foot the way that you do
Always with consideration are
Those things that you do

Was it ever mine for keeping
That shine of life in your eyes
No longer able to watch the sky’s
At night for gone is the element
Of surprise

Was it ever mine for the loosing
For surely I’ve come such a way
For who could ever imagined
That I would have loved some day

Was it ever mine at all as you shared
You love then went on your way
