The You in Me

Listen to poem:
The you in me that I know

goes with me where I go --

the you that isn't you at all

comes to me when I recall

the days we spent as we grew.

I never guessed, I never knew,

all that I'd have left of you

would be my thoughts of those two:

of the you in me, the me in you.

This is a philosophical truth that should ring true with all of us and our relationships with others. Message is great, flow and rhyme both very smooth. A solid 7 my friend..

Oh, Leo, you don't now how this piece really spoke to me, brother. My first love will always be the benchmark by which I compare all love interests. How I miss Danny (Danielle). - Mal

Some never know the joy of feeling like one. You have expressed this beautifully in these few lines. A person can live a lifetime having known love just once and forever keeping those memories dwelling in the heart.
