I Remember…

Standard

A song I wrote a few years ago:

 

I remember when
I stood up for you
When they called you names.
I remember when
You were there for me
Everytime I fell.
But do you remember
I tried my best to make you happy
But do you remember
You were the only one I wanted to see.

I remember
Knocking on your door
In the cold December.
I remember
Running away
With a big fist of anger.
I remember
All the time we spent together,
Best friends forever.

I can still hear you laugh
Every now and again.
I still don’t want to believe you left,
There goes a friend.
I can still see your eyes smile
Underneath your glasses
Can you believe it’s been a while
Since you moved away?
But can you believe
You’re still the only one I want to see?

I remember
Knocking on your door
In the cold December.
I remember
Running away
With a big fist of anger.
I remember
All the time we spent together,
Best friends forever.

And still
You’re constantly on my mind
And still
You’re impossible to find
And still
I hope to see you again
And still
I wish I had my best friend.

I remember
Laughing until I could not breathe
I remember
You were the only one who got me
I remember
Thinking we’d always be together,
Best friends forever.

Faded Art

Standard

I feel jaded
Like broken glass,
A crumpled  piece of paper
In a garbage can.
You stand,
A marble piece of art,
I marveled
Not too far
Away from where you are.
I told you of your strengths,
You said I was weak.
I told you you would last,
You said I’d fall at your feet.
Your color began to fade,
But I said  you were colorful all the same.
Your diamond eyes began to crack
But I said  you were without lack.
I tried to grow
But you said I was too small.
I tried to glow,
But yous said I was too dim.
So I shrunk
As you grew  big,
I faded
As you shown through.
I collected cobwebs
As they dusted you off.
You attracted money,
And I attracted moss.
You were sold,
I was for sale,
You found a home,
As I grew stale.
But you were still unsatisfied.
You tried to smile,
But could only frown,
Your colors faded,
So they took you down.
Now you’re jaded
Like broken glass,
Crumpled paper,
In a garbage can.

A Time

Standard

Once upon a time
An angel flew into my life
She walked among you and me
Her wings disguised
To took my hand
And taught me to fly.

A time not too long ago
I met her
I met you.
And you showed me things I never knew.
I had never known
When you chose me that day
I was meeting a soul-mate.

There was a time
(there still is)
When I realize
I want to be your angel too.
I want to show you grass that is blue
A sky filled with light
And give a wide smile to you
my friend.

Once upon a time
I met my best friend.
