O’Precious Mine

Do you remember?
The days spent in leisure

When happiness knew no measure

The childlike spirit flew in gay abandon

Basking under the bright golden sun
Do you remember?

On our lips had died the song

That we once hummed together

While being with one another
I remember
The night as it freezes over

For the morning to recover

Not once but everyday

I wish there was a way
To bring back the time

Spent with you,  o’ precious mine
