Placing You First

I placed you first,

Even though you knew not.

For it was better done than said;

That it was truly from my heart.


And so I gave them up

I gave it all up for good

Left my mind heated from thoughts

As I lain every night to sleep


Thoughts so deep, I could not understand;

Whether I was going mad,

When I took that spit for you,

Or it was just love,

That I had for you.


My granny would not forgive me

For I left his funeral so early

To get you that ice cream

Else you would scream


Wishing to wake up and say,

"What a dream!"

NO! not a dream, it's a nightmare.

One that i cannot bear to share.


I pray you leave me now

My heart you wrecked

Lies in ruins

To think that place you had, but how.


I placed you first

Not because I knew you first

I placed you first

Because you were the best


And now I rest my words

For I now weep

Good-bye my sweet

Or may I say, my CURSE!
