I'd Never Pass You By


I asked myself today, if I could've done things different
Change my very story, the places that I've went
Would I still have met you, or would I pass it by?
Even if I knew I couldn't protect you or try?

Would I relive the pain, the memories, the fears
Moments that overwhelmed me, that drowned me in tears
Days that I can say that I was only breathing
Mourning inside, silently grieving

Would I choose to have never known these times
Refuse to let you cross my hollow mind
To never have this void, never know you existed
Than to be in this pit that I so long have resisted?

And if there were some way I could refuse
Your memory is the greatest loss I could ever lose
I'd cry a lifetime river, sink into my hurt
Before I'd deny you, and what you were

Though death get's his way, rips us in two
All of my life, the spotlights on you
You weren't some mistake I could've avoided
You were a film my life had recorded

Play by play, smile by smile,
My mind holds them all in mountainous piles
Missing you's now just a part of myself
I wouldn't trade one bit for anyone else

Oh, these hard days, I love them anyway
I'd meet you all over though I'd break everyday
Because even taking it back wouldn't do
None of that would leave me with you

I have you, I have you, in my very soul
Places where only you could ever hold
And though it's painful, everyday a fall
I'd rather know you this way, than never know you at all

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
