I found you and I lost you, yes. (But I think I also lost myself; yes, most of all myself.)

A Golden Day
Paul Laurence Dunbar

I found you and I lost you,
All on a gleaming day.
The day was filled with sunshine,
And the land was full of May.

A golden bird was singing
Its melody divine,
I found you and I loved you,
And all the world was mine.

I found you and I lost you,
All on a golden day,
But when I dream of you, dear,
It is always brimming May.
