TO YOU I BID ADIEU


Okay, I know I said that was the last one, but this idea came to me and I had to get it down. Kind of a release from the past. I Realized how I was such a fool. We all make stupid mistakes sometimes and never realize how foolish we were. I went looking for something unprepared and found what I wasn't really looking for, but at the time it just seemed right. Sometimes right is just so wrong. I learned a valuable lesson this year. Another one for the books. I will not forget this one quite so easily. I can't promise that I won't make more mistakes for that is the way of life. You live, you learn, and hopefully you won't make the same mistakes again and again. I believe now I am ready for the world again. I have just seen the light and the past is now that past. I am good with it now I hope, or that is what I have been saying to myself, I hope I won't make those mistakes again; but if I do, then so be it. Man what a ride. What a ride. Solid!



TO YOU I DIB ADIEU

Written by: Wilfred Mellers (Deh Bagwa Shashmani Swami) , Wednesday, October 28,2009 @ 5: 35 PM

I saw your recent memories online
I needed to see to make up my mind
I am now ready to let it all go
I will be much better off now I know

It was hard coming to this decision
Love was truly my only religion
I had giving you the upper hand
You took it all, turned, and then ran

It is fine now for I am good
I did that best that any man could
I gave my all and got nothing in return
I see now you’ve let old bridges burn

I needed this to make everything all right
For the deaf now hears, and you’ve given the blind sight
Now I understand that everything was such a lie
You can go now and be well with your guy

No tears will come for you to my eyes
No more shall I have dreary darken skies
From the ashes now the phoenix rise
The dawn meets greet a morning surprise

It’s cool; you certainly had your fun
For you your lonely road has just begun
As for me, now I am finally done
Cast you know out of my Eden

My heart still beats needing some new repairs
One day you’ll find no one else compares
I will not be left down and despairing
For another my heart is now preparing

From greater heights I have fell
No longer I under your spell
A good lesson now I’ve learned well
You are not worth it, I now can tell

From the heavens I thought you befell
From my heart now you I expel
The coffee burns hot and started to smell
Someone new will now ring the doorbell

I was so stupid like a barbell
I knew you would leave for I am the dumbbell
No longer do you have to walk on eggshells
The earth no longer moves nor my heart swells

Distinguish the Don of the cartel
The lioness snarled as she ate the gazelle
Fireside burns amber to a hollow Noel
Tired eyes look now so unwell

Words assured and so compelling
Erroneous assumptions uttered soup was selling
Dashed aside dreams by nuclear bomb shelling
Accurate forecasting the crystal ball foretelling

Summing it up in a nutshell
You truly put my heart through living hell
Sincerity, you’ll never win a Prize Nobel
Colors you changed from navy blue to something pastel

No whiteout on a darken inkwell
Rain resistant eyes tears now repel
You have your stories now you can tell
Friends no longer for this our last farewell
