All I Have Left

Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you. I wrote a song about the night I met you. Then came the one about the broken dreams. I almost died the night I wrote the verses About how things are never what they seem. Then came the one about the lost tomorrows That, somehow, we both knew we’d never see. Now I sit and try to write the final chorus To a song that tells just how it used to be. Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you. Once I wrote a song about forever --- You told me that you liked it most of all. But, somehow, our forever never happened And broken dreams are all that I recall. So, a hundred songs cannot erase the sorrow --- Nor a thousand verses ever still the pain --- And a million years could never dim the pleasure I would know if I could hold you once again. Now that it’s over --- Now that it’s through All I have left Are these songs about you.

    John; This is a beautiful poem, from the beginning to the end. at the end - That'all we have - memories, or songs and I bet your songs are beautiful. I also like to write songs, but my songs are in Spanish. Thanks. Lucilla

    Thank you my friend. My poems are written about life experiences, some mine and some I see around me. There are countless seeds for songs and poems planted all around us. All we have to do is open up and see and listen. Love ya..... Jake
