What I Wouldn’t Give By Brendan Faithfull

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.
