All You Were Was Wishes

Written by: Johnette Loefgren

All you were was wishes
      written on the wind,
blown about by breezes,
    less than just a friend.
Sad to say I'm sorry,
for landing on that edge,
where heart and mind
      are ill defined
and fantasies must end.

Look I see you sighing
    off across the dawn,
notes of mental messages
    of yesterdays now gone,
as hollow as the echoes
     calling back to say..
Don't hate me now,
    you see somehow,
I have to live this way.

I really am so empty
     of love and faith and hope,
engaging you, 
       is what I do............
       my only way to cope.
