It was a time when we were lost, a time when we were free, a time before time when youth mattered!
If you knew who you were no time would matter,
If you knew who you were the days would turn about.
If you knew who you were the ages would worship you,
If you knew who you were the stars would melt and fall into the seas.
You are to me as golden goblets which hold choice wine of centuries long past,
The finest jewels a man could ever gather,
You are the sweetest spices held by the hand of men.
If you knew who you were the angels, they would rejoice in exultant song,
Their voice like the songbirds in mornings dawn,
Forever singing to man’s pleasure.
If you knew who you were, you’d be the finest treasure,
If you knew who you were, you’d still be my three to love forever.
For you, my loves you are the life I long to live,
The days now past.
The days to begin,
The days that wither as I age yet keep me young as springtime winds.
