Now, Lost

Now the moment
Lost to me since then
Gone forever it went
When I saw you was when

Consumed by your smile and beauty
Everything else vanished away
Now for ever lost to me
The thought of you is all I have today

Now the eternal moment
Has been taken from me by you
A memory to always lament
My passion took a love that was true

How can I regain this moment
To again live in the eternal now
A past now gone is where I frequent
Set me free from it if you know how

Give me back this minute this moment
You took when you called me your love
I know you meant it and did not regret
Or have another your heart held above

I took it away in just one moment
When my desire crept in when you said wait
Now my soul is left in eternal torment
Knowing now it is forever too late

If you ever find just a moment
To just say that you can forgive
The moment that your love went
And again let us both in now live

How can I forgive myself that moment
When I too had said we should wait
To know that in love the moment was meant
Now I have turned your love into hate

Give us back to this moment
Try to see that we both wanted it to be
Knowing now the love was truly sent
And in our hearts it is there for all to see

Now lost in a past moment
A test we both put ourselves through
What could have seen our love cement
Has taken the moment from us too

So I ask you to again find the moment
Then when you knew you loved me
See that it is still now and potent
And that I do mean Wor Ai Nee
