Because Of You - Poem by Patrick Shields

The Other Night I Almost Gave Up My Life
In The Form of Selfish Suicide
But You Talked Me Out Of Dying
With All The Tears You Where Crying

You Begged Me To Stay Here With You
Because I Don't Judge You One Of The Few
Your Heartfelt Tears Helped Me To Stay
And Helped Heal My Heart So Fray

Because Of You I'm Still Alive
Because Of You I Can Smile Again
Because Of You I Can Tell You I Love You

You Also Hold The Key To My Heart As Well
I Feel As If I'm Under Some Kind Of Spell
Now Because Of You I'm Still Alive
And Now I'm Glad I Didn't Die

Because Of You I'm Still Alive
Because Of You I Can Smile Again
Because Of You I Can Tell You I Love You

Now I Fully Intend To Never Give Up
I Know If Your Here With Me It Will Be Enough
I'll Be Ok As Long As Your Here WIth Me
Than Some Day From This Depression We'll Be Free

Because Of You I'm Still Alive
Because Of You I Can Smile Again
Because Of You I Can Tell You I love You
