My Song For You - Poem by Bonnie Cote

god spared you
i guess he spared me too
you know i didn't, couldn't, wouldn't
understand it at the time
all i wanted was for you to be mine
oh yeah
god yeah

you know the pain
you know the game
we were the same
in the same vein
shared pleasure and pain
oh yeah
god yeah

god is good, god is great
he makes us see the great divide
we were the same
you weren't to blame
it wasn't me
meant to be
with you
who knew?

god spared me
spared me from you
but you knew
what went down
was bad
ugly, sad, way too bad

be happy, little boy
not my toy
but free to blow
where light wind blows
cry in the night
there's no one left
to fight for you now

still in my prayers
love never dies
please don't cry
you tried, you tried
hard but things were too hard
for you
who knew?
oh yeah
god yeah
well he knew
but even he didn't know what to do
with you

and the wind blew
somewhere in the distance
a cat cried out in pain
clipped by train
in the pouring rain
it's a sad tale but true
love went blue
skin turned blue
but you got out
scraped and bleeding
but alive

scars heal
wounds seal
but damaged skin is damaged skin
kin i love you
never be
anything but free
try to be happy
little boy
you were joy
if not to many
at least to me
while our time
meant to be
