By Mike Turner

Though time has slowly brushed awayThe sharpness of my mind
And where my vision once was clear
Now mostly I am blind


I do remember that sweet day
We saw what we could be
And started down our lifetime’s path
Together, you and me


We looked ahead, out toward our lives
But now, I look behind
And dwell upon your warm embrace
Two hearts, two lives entwined


These are the things which I still know
The visions that I see
Our dreams have turned to memories
Of I, and you, and we


Now as I wait to go beyond
Not knowing what I’ll find
I have the sweetness of our life
With which my heart to bind


So as I pass through that great door
Your hand gives me the key
I’ll look into your eyes once more
And be forever free
