She Was The Love of Mine

(Colin Hay/Richard Jacques)

She was the love of mine
And I held her hand in mine
She has the mercy like the rising of the sea
She opened my eyes to wonder
In my wandering eyes I held her
In this moment her soul became a part of me

Mother of mine
You are the light that always shines
Into the world you let me see

She was the love of mine and we
We had the best of times
We watched the ships sail
At the fading of the day

She wore the color green
And she talked of the things she’d seen
Now only love remains
When all has come and gone

Mother of mine
You are the light that always shines
Into the world you let me see
Mother of mine
You are the light that always shines
Now I carry you as you carried me

She was the love of mine
And I held her hand in mine
