Mel Green: Songs & Lyrics

All This Time

(Mel Green, M.Green, ©2010 MelGreen Publishing, BMI)

At last, our paths converged.
A completely unexpected introduction to the woman who is the love of my life,
led to my recollecting the events that marked the way our bond was forged...
how simple acts can lead to deep love, yearning, hope and fulfillment... 

This one is for my darling.

How could it be 

she’s been there all this time.

Almost gave up on true love

And I was only biding time

Hoping for one true love

 

Your voice drew me in 

So warm, good and secure

Are you the one 

for whom I yearn

For love, simple and pure?

 

Blue eyes, grey curls, 

so slim and curved

A mind so quick and kind

We talked about 

our common worlds

Not loud, not crude, sublime

 

Walking beaches under winter skies

Quite unaware of time

Your tingling touch, your smiling eyes

I helped your rocky climb

 

I asked were you single still?

Reveals my inner need

Perhaps desire to fulfill

On wings to me you’ll speed

 

I yearn for you as sun is set

Warmed by this new desire

Day breaks your vision fills my head

Kindling my inner fire

 

There’s a kindred soul for everyone

So long I hoped and prayed

Where is she God, where can she be?

Years in wilderness I strayed

 

And so I recognized my love one day

It’s you for whom I’ve prayed

You are sweet and kind, and so I say...

It is you for whom I’ve craved.

 

How could it be  

you’ve been there all this time.

Almost gave up on true love

We were only biding time

We have found our one true love
