  ***This poem was written in remembrance of my fiancee. It has since been set to music and posted at Jamwave...where it is a beautiful reminder of a love I don't forget.

Thereís a place I still remember
Where the water stops and sighs,
For itís holding all the memories
Of the laughter in your eyes.
If I sat there for a lifetime
Would my heart be satisfied?
Would the emptiness inside
Ever replace the tears Iíve cried?

Itís a long way to fall
From the place I once belonged.
Itís a hard road to walk
When I walk it so alone.

Was it yesterday we whispered
All the dreams weíd never see?
Canít remember if we promised
Or just hoped weíd always be.
When I look into your picture
How I wish that you were free
To pick up the empty piecesÖ
Lord, theyíre all thatís left of me.

Itís a long way to fall
From the place I once belonged.
Itís a hard road to walk
When I walk it so alone.

Did I tell you that I love you,
Did I say it clear enough?
Were there any doubts that lingered,
Were there moments it was tough?
Did you know Iíd never leave you,
Did you recognize my trust?
Did you know Iíd always need you,
Did you know I always must?

Itís a long way to fall
From the place I once belonged
Itís a hard road to walk
When I walk it so alone.

Itís a long way to fall
It feels so empty and alone
I canít bear the road I walk
Dear God, please donít let it be long.

That was really good. Did you write the words, music, etc?

I wrote the words...a friend of mine wrote the music and recorded it...albeit on a website..it's not as if it's been put on a cd or anything. But I love it, and I'm proud of it.
