When I Left You

I remember when I left you
Left you standing in the rain
Not a second thought
Not a concern for your pain

I remember when I left you
Left you standing in the dark
Not a second thought
No I never looked back

The only one who truly loved me
Proved yourself time... and time again
But I never looked back
Even tried to forget your name
Wished I'd never see your face again (maybe)

I remember where I left you
Left you stranded and alone
Not a second thought
Like you were litter thrown

I remember when I left you
Not as much as a goodbye
Your only company, a broken heart
And like a stranger I walked on by

No, I never looked back...
And in a second I was gone
Not a second thought
Only looked strait on

No, I never thought twice
Threw you out of my mind
Turned my back and left you...
Left you behind

I don't regret that I left you
Only that I hadn't been so cruel
That when I was young, I hadn't been such a fool

That I hadn't left you...
Left you crying...

Crying waiting for me
... to turn back.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
