Poetry And Lyrics
| Submitted on 12/22/2008 |
Here's to the pain I hide inside,
And the tears that were
The night's I stayed up wishing
That there was a way,
I could save you.
The day I said
I love you,
I just hope you know
That it was the truth.
The days that I felt pain;
Not mine, but yours.
All the nights I hoped that you felt the same.
The day I said I hate you,
For what you had done.
And the time I forgave us both;
First me, then you.
The very first night I cried
Myself to sleep, because there was no way to help.
The time I realized
You could never feel the same about me,
Because to you I was just a memory.
But here's to tonight,
The night that I walked away
I left you in the back of my mind,
And said, I may love you
But your presence will never hurt me
For it was you who missed out,
Even though your nothing more to me than an old friend.
I'll say this for your benefit
My heart may be broken beyond repair
Not because I couldn't save you,
But because of the few years
That I was away,
And missed all the good times,
Before you came to be like this.
So here's to you,
This time I will forget...
Here's To You
I wrote this almost two years ago when I was in 8th grade. It's dedicated to my old friend Trent. I found out that he started doing drugs and was hooked since 5th grade. He is still currently selling drugs to middle and elementary schoolers. I'm still devestated over it because he is so much better than this.
