My Love is Gone

 

 

My Love is Gone

 

i still remember looking into his dark

brown eyes and begging him not to go.

he dried my tears and said that

he would never forget me.

there was nothing i could do to stop him –

and to think i loved him so.

Not As Bad As You Think

 

 

Not As Bad As You Think

 

don’t take it so hard –

it could be worse –

the sun could never shine

and the sky could always be gray –

but look at it this way darling –

i love you

and it was meant to be.

i couldn’t love but now i can

and i always will.

so during the hard times

think of me

and you’ll discover life

isn’t as bad as you think.

Me

 

 

Me

 

the window glass is as clear

as their minds –

and it’s a good thing men can’t

be arrested for what they’re

thinking –

for everyone would be living their

lives away in cages.

but isn’t that where they belong?

 

the world is my cage –

and the sky is my keeper.

my inmates are my thoughts and

the emotions of my heart.

my life is mine and no one

can turn my head.

be happy –

leave your tears inside –

put on a mask that smiles

and leave your cage door

open for

me.

Because of Pat

 

 

Because of Pat

 

i feel free

and my soul is light.

i have finally discovered

what life is truly for.

see the smile on my face ?

it’s because of you.

when i’m with you

nothing else matters because

i love you –

and it’s wonderful –

for love is life

and life is love

and things are made to be discovered –

and i have discovered you.
