by now (i still love you)
by leigh richard denny

By now I've grown old and grey,
this age may be my last,
I may never build another day 
atop my lifetime's past,

I've a frail, fragile form
and every effort is a strain;
my arms are weak, my legs are worn,
my back is hunched in pain,

but despite my dying state
I've kept my cherished youth in part,
as the passing years could never take
the life within my heart,

my love, my one possession,
the soul on which I'm based,
my sense of joy's obsession,
the thoughts of friends embraced,

and my love of you is my most dear,
more so than words can state,
such meanings disappear
when faced with happiness so great,

as for so long, you have been to me
so beautiful in every way,
throughout our time ,seen to be
the sunlight of each day,

spent thankful I can prize
each and every time we've met,
the joy to fall into your eyes...
how can i forget,

I'll never, I feel sure,
despite my time to pass from view,
as elsewhere I shall be ever more,
still in love with you.
