Samuel Newton (5th december / India)
Heart Broken With Shattered Dreams...
My days are long, my nights are cold
Without you here for me to hold.
The moment we kissed, I knew it was right
To love you & want you with all of my might.
The hopes that we shared, the dreams that we dreamt
Then you turned around & said nothing was meant.
The memories we've got, the joy & the pain
Are finished, forgotten - you wont try again.
You said that you care, that's no longer enough
So you just up and leave - the woman that I love.
You want to be free, to chat up with the boys,
The tall ones, the short ones, the blacks and the whites;
You never told me these things you were feeling
You've broken my heart & I cant see it healing.
I hope that you're happy in all that you do
That my pain & my hurt YOU never go through.
You weren't just my love but my best friend as well.
I gave you my all when in love I fell.
If I meet someone else, and I'm not sure I will
This hole in my heart she never can fill.
With you all my dreams looked like coming true
You've robbed me of those, what can I now do?
You said that you loved me, that we should get wed.
We then bought a house, new kitchen & bed!
But now its all over, you want me no more
Swept out of your life like the dust on the floor.
If you want to re-live the great times we had,
Just give me a ring, I'll be only too glad.
