What I Wouldn’t Give What I wouldn’t give to go back, to have those days with my dearest where none of us felt loving lack when we were each other’s nearest; and feeling the loss of that bliss, aching to live as we once did my heart and mind turn to this, the time home with our joy was lit; but the love that once lit our home is now spread; though near, still apart, and in our house I live alone which without you all is but dark.
