After the last war has done its damage
After my child becomes a sage
After we set aside our differences
In my world, I whisper your name

Gentle breezes wipe clean fighters’ feelings
So intensely focused in wars gone by
Stirring pictures of discarded memories
Snapshots in the wind may lie

Before I go, I want to know you
Before I leave, please take my hand
Before it’s over, I want to love you
Play with me in the sands of time

As I turn the pages to the future
As I read each word in time
As I understand your true feelings
In my heart, spirits dance to rhyme

Your face pressed softly on my shoulder
Our escape from the daily strife
Beautiful words we share together
I regret you weren’t in my life

Before I go, I want to know you
Before I leave, please take my hand
Before it’s over, I want to love you
Play with me in the sands of time

Once daylight gives away its shadows
Once the moon casts the only glow
Once our words reforest the meadows
It is then, in my heart, I will know

Too many years I spent without you
Problems took you to who knows where
My only desire was to love you
My only wish was that you’d care

Before I go, I want to know you
Before I leave, please take my hand
Before it’s over, I want to love you
Play with me in the sands of time
…Before…I go——————-
