    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.

    Life goes on...we love again...differently.  Let go of the drama, when you are ready, & move on.  Do not close your heart to love.

    The more we love, no matter our age/or the time, the more we are LOVED!
