 Lyrics and pic by me ©Joanne Olivieri No Longer Are You Mine Your piercing eyes see through A mirror to my soul Our love , my heart, we grew You were what made me whole I now no longer smile When thoughts of you appear Pleasure, but for a while Fades away, my dear. With lips as sweet as wine You kissed my cares away No longer are you mine Forever and today. Chorus: No longer are you mine Forever and today We simply sip some wine And toast our love away Your soft and gentle touch Soothed my every need I loved you, oh so much Now my heart can only bleed. We shared our every thought Each moment a fantasy Of late we only fought Unforgiving on bended knee. I must now thank you so For the joy you gave to me Seems a lifetime ago Again, I am now free. Chorus: No longer are you mine Forever and today We simply sip some wine And toast our love away
