I'm Drowning

When we first met I'll never forget The sky just seemed so blue In the blink of an eye We flew so high I was drowning in thoughts of you. Weeks went by Full of sad goodbyes It's meant to be, we knew The nights were long And felt so wrong I was drowning in dreams of you The pages turned And memories burned Our new love found so true I wanted you here And I needed you near I was drowning in love with you But then a surprise Hidden deep in your eyes Our light cast a different hue. The passion went missing And when we stopped kissing I was drowning in heartache for you Now I'm living this life No longer your wife Unsure of what I'm supposed to do I just sit here and cry 'Till I'm wanting to die Still drowning in tears over you I thought we were stronger Can't take this much longer I'm sure you would die if you knew My feelings have changed And my life rearranged Drowning in disappointment of you For all that we had I'm so thankfully glad I often look back at the view And I prey you remember The glow of each ember My fire died drowning in you

Pretty much tells the story of everyone who has ever had a relationship go sour. Really great work. Technically and subjectively. Of course I am a little biased. I think all of your work is wonderful. Love it Jeannie!!
