For you..

by Shannon

The way I felt for you
I felt it was very true

Before you came along
My life seemed all wrong

But you came along and dried my tears
You took away every fret and every fear

You broke through my darkness and shined some light
Like the sun you filled me with a warm delight

You seemed to erase my past
And I swore our love would forever last

But today you told me what I feared
You told me that our end neared

You said the pain was too great
And if I was to say something it was already too late

You said you would miss my gentle touch
But you did not want to talk again because the pain was too much

You said you were not right for me
You wanted me to spread my wings and be free

You said "I want you to have the best, cant you see?
I do not want to let you go, but this is how it has to be.

You are everything I've ever wanted.
It was to you my problems I confronted.

Please forget what we had
And darling, please dont be sad.

Please dont cry.
Please, please, just try.

I love you
And I know you love me too."

You turned around and slowly walked away
The pain was so great that "I love you" I was unable to say

Over and over in my head
It repeated all the things that you said

I then remember that you told me to forget you and our love
But how could I forget something I knew was sent from up above

I knew that you wanted me to move on
And that you would want me to stay strong

And for you I will do that,
Just leave my life where it is at

And then start a new one
And to shine and fill me with that delight I will find a new sun

I will find someone that you would want for me
Someone as perfect as you, you see?
