How can I let go of that which I did hold so very dear When the price I paid for finding you was so much more than just a tear. I looked and searched and looked some more, But found no one whom I did adore. Then finally my gaze set firmly upon thee And a heart pure as gold is what there I did see. From the first moment I saw you my heart fell in love; You were like a vision of perfection sent down from high above. With you I found it natural to share so freely of my heart And the only thing that saddened me was when we were apart. We planned and we talked of the bright future that we had, We laughed and we loved and only sometimes were we sad; But we learned and we grew through the many things we shared For we knew that there was one to turn to, one who always cared... And then something began to change, you said it was you not I; You started doubting how you felt and something began to die. So we backed off, clearing out the date that scared you very most, Then for a while things settled down as there was no more haunting ghost. But then a time did swiftly come when you still needed to have more space; The answer to this problem was to put a ring back in its place. After that day things seemed to be a bit more leveled out Though I found myself still wondering what this was all about? And then that frightful day did finally come to be As all that I had left to hold was that bond between you and me. But this you felt, was still to close we had to push that bond apart, And it was then I felt true loneliness for I no longer held your heart. You have taken all but your friendship from me You have told me that I deserve someone better than thee. Yet all I ever wanted from the outset, from the start... Was to make you happy, give you love- to share with you my heart. So I find myself now wondering, if you will try to take our friendship too... If even this is just too close for me to be to you? I lay here sad and so alone numbed from what I've been told, It's as though I've been tossed into the night to shiver in the bitter cold. I only wanted to make you happy, to bring joy and love to thee For happiness I always found when you shared your love with me. I never wanted any other for you fulfilled my every dream I felt so sure when I found your love that we would always be a team. But now I feel quite differently, I feel I'm intruding in your life And every time I talk to you my heart is cut by a sharpened knife. You have no time, no room for me there's always something you must do, Yet before you always had the time for me to be with you. So if you ever find your heart again longs for true love If you should ever face your fear and hear that direction from above; I think you'll hear again those words that you already knew... That work of this world does nothing more than drain your life from you. For fruits of the heart are the only thing that can last eternally, And life without love is just a waste it might as well never be. If you should ever with your heart understand what I've said here I pray you'll consider this request I make to truly be sincere. If you should ever seek to find someone who loves you with their whole heart, I hope you'll see that I'm someone who of your life yearns to be a part. Christopher T. Moore October 21, 1994
