I Saw You Today

I walked and talked with you today,
And we had plenty to do and say.

It was wonderful to see you again;
Oh, what a great time it had been.

We talked over our times now past,
And agreed that they'd always last.

We embraced each other awhile,
And share each other's smile.

Our lips met with sweet content;
None of our love has been spent.

But when I opened my eyes,
I could no longer see you!

Was it the truth, or was it lies?
But I know I saw you!
