    THAT WAS BEFORE YOU.......

                    At times i'm lost and confused
                     been broken-hearted and abused
                     burned a candle at both ends
                    shed tears every now and then
                   
                   Cut  the darkness like a blade of steel
                   believed in dreams, i thought were real
                   reached for stars that just weren't there
                   said goodbye without a care.
                  
                  but that was before you.
                  
               i've washed a rainbow from the sky
               with a teardrop from my eye.
                 whispered out old lovers names
                 then watched as love went down in flames
                
                Cherished the old memories
                sacrificed my heart. to set one free
               convince myself love was never true
               but that was before you
             
               said farewell to yesterday
               touched a heart, but wouldn't stay
               made mistakes, paid the price
               ask forgiveness once or twice
                
              lost the heart, let made me whole 
              cursed myself for letting go
              living with the memory
              clinging to what used to be

              loneliness is all i knew
             but that was before you..........

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
