To Have Without Holding

Left Behind

I was in love once
But never again
He was my soul mate
He was my best friend
Oh we would fight
And they were really ugly
But I loved him so much
And he was no catch
He was fine as hell
Hells what he put me through
Everyday no matter what
But I loved him
After ten long years of trying
When every word was like dying
My eyes so tired of crying
I walked away
...............................
Today I find myself hurting
Wishing he was here
I miss him so very much
My heart welled up in tears
I think of him everyday
Wonder how hes been
Has he found a new love
Has he found a new best friend
I'm pretty sure he has
I told you he's looker
I will never love again
I know this is true
Because I left my heart behind
When I walked out that afternoon.
