Shadows Of The Past

I wish I could slowly open up my veins and let all my blood fall at your feet. Than maybe you could see, how much I love you, but that is not to be - because your eyes are close to me. I wish I could tell you so many things of what you mean to me - but your ears are also close for me. As I am kneeling here before you and my life is slowly draining out of me, all I can think of is - memories of you and me. The days of fun and laughter that you and I used to share, when everything we did was new and everything was fun and the love I felt for you was from the bottom of my heart. Now those days are gone and our youth has gone with them. But my love still remains the same. If you could only hear and you could only see, than maybe you would know - how in life I'm slowly dying and all I have now are memories that are nothing but Shadows Of The Past...

    it seems that your love is very strong, but on deaf ears it does'nt belong. give your love to another who will appreciate you for you- tha is what you have to do.

    The memories hidden in shadows are hard to deal with. Silence is sometimes a heavy load to carry.
