This Was My Love

Writer(s): James K. Harbert
From the Album Complete Reprise Studio Recordings
{editor’s note: there has been some confusion over whether this song is “This Was My Love” or “This Is My Love”. The BMI database lists the song both ways, with the same author. Methinks someone may have ‘bent’ the song at some point to suit their own whims.}

Soft as a raindrop, fresh as the sea
Warm as the sunshine shining on me
This was my love, this was my love
Light was her laughter, few were her tears
Gentle her beauty, tender her years
This was my love, this was my love
So young, so fair, such bright golden hair
A smile always on her face
No other love can ever compare
No other can take her place
Others may cherish fortune or fame
I will forever cherish her name
For this was my love
This was my love!
