tonight my heart hurts
my stomach churns
my smiles faded
my eyes burn
the tears came hard
and met at my chin
the outward sight
of feelings within
engrossing emotions
invading my mind
thought i'd come far
but i'm falling behind
back from the past
back to the start
reconnecting my thoughts
my soul and my heart
collecting the lessons
life has taught me
the soil and the water
the food for my tree
i will not wither
i will not fade
i will prosper
in sun and shade
no matter what happens
or will surround
can shake me, i'm planted
firmly, in the ground
i am here now
more than ill ever be
i'll never be anything
other than me.

I bought a big bed
for us to share
When I lay down,
I still see you there
I still taste your kiss
I still feel your skin
See your big, brown eyes
Your dimples, your grin
I hold onto my pillow
and wish it was you
I can't wait until
my wishes come true
two months from now
I'll be with you again
Once more in the arms
of my love and my friend.
