Inspired by the song, “Never Gonna Let You Go”, by Sergio Mendes, 1983
If only I could go back, to just sixteen years ago;
I would hold you close all day and night, “I Would Never Let You Go”!
Unlike when I used to leave you, for extended business trips;
Seeking fame and fortune, your hearts and Souls both ripped!
I sacrificed such tender times, that I should have spent with you;
My precious Angel Soulmates, who loved me very true!
I was hunting for hidden treasures, when I had such riches right at home;
And now that you’re both in Heaven, forever I atone!
I wish that you were young again, and full of youthful energy;
The three of us inseparable, you’d be ever next to me!
We would travel as a triumvirate, o’er the land, go to and fro;
Sharing all the times we should have spent, for “ I Would Never Let You Go”!
I sought lost fortunes
But had riches right at home
Now gone forever
