Thanks To You

Poem By TOM Altenhofen

I remember every day of those 5 years I knew you. I remember the joy and pain. I never saw such a girl, such a wonderful girl. I suffer forever, thanks to you.

I remember the fun times, when we colored the world. I remember the songs we sang. I never had as much fun, as much magical fun. I'm darker now, thanks to you.

I remember the years we grew up together. I remember when you were so young. I never had joy, what a marvelous joy. I'm joyless now, thanks to you.

I remember the tears when you still were so shy. I remember the stage where you didn't fit in. I never felt special 'til you made me feel special. I'm worthless now, thanks to you.

I remember the songs you sang really loud. I remember your wild side. I never was humored, so hilariously humored. I'm dead now, thanks to you.

I remember we acted together on stage and you playfully called me your man. I remember you seemed like you cared. I never felt stupid, so pathetically stupid. I'm hurt now, thanks to you.

I remember the girls, such lovable girls.10's,20's,30's and more
I was shut down by all and rejected like nothing, ignored, avoided and left.
They never gave me a chance to show that my love can be so real.

Now You'Re Gone (A Song)

Mend my heart once again
Can you tell just how much it's been broken?
All the pain deep inside
It's amazing how much I can hide

I hadn't eaten that day so already I was weak.
I slashed the blade down my chest and as I started to bleed,

As I sat in the dark a light went on
But you walked away and the light was gone

Gone, Can'T Come Back (A Song)
