Sad would be the moments
If my love you were not

Sad would be the seconds
As my heart would cry
Soft tears

Sad would be the minutes
If they were not spent
Loving you

Sad would be the mornings
If they started without your
Taste of love so true.

Sad would be the new morning
If I could not see your
Smiling face

Sad would be each afternoon
If I was left without you
Loving embrace

So sad would be the evening
If I was unable to welcome
You home

So sad would be the night-time
If I was to find myself all

for life would be meaningless
Without your nourishing joy,
To take all of my sadness away.

(1981, Hawaii, a sad moment
when my wife took time to
visit her Mom and family
back home in Illinois)
