“I Miss My Darling Children of the Past” (click here for lyrics)

I miss my darling children of the past.
Whatever I may do it just won’t last.
So when I am with you I fear that this will be past too.
Oh, I miss my darling children of the past.

I miss those good old days that now are gone.
The memories fade away as life moves on. 
So when I am with you I fear you’ll be a memory too
How I miss those good old days that now are gone

I know I’m getting older and time won’t wait for me.
I don’t know why I’m feeling this way.
I cannot tell the future or see what’s yet to be.
But I’d just like to cherish today.

The mountain before me would never ignore me;
I’d look at it’s face and go after it fast.
The valley behind me could never quite find me;
I never was one who could live in the past. 

Now I miss those loving times with long lost friends.
A good love comes my way and then love ends.
So when I am with you I fear the end will come in view.
Yes, I miss those loving times with long lost friends. (Copyright © Stephen J. Miller)
If Love Could

If love could cure all ills and time were on our side
You’d seize the day with an eager smile and take on the world with pride.

If love could make you know the value of who you are,
You’d feel the glory of healthy pride, and shine like the brightest star.

My love may mask the truth, as graffiti on canyon walls.
Maybe my love smothers the spark that would rise as the evening falls.

But I don’t love you with a goal in mind; my love is not my own design.
My world is built on the simple faith that I am yours and you are mine.

 I  do still believe that love will yet prevail. 
Through all the storms of the wildest seas, our ship will boldly sail.  ©1998 Stephen J Miller
