Shadows - Poem by Pete Rivera

What can I do?
What can I say?
When I call to you
But you run away

And shadow form
Shadows form
I saw them form
My heart is torn

Why did you run?
Why did you hide?
You left me to die
When I stayed
Stayed at your side

I sang for you
These words for you
I sing to you
Only for you
It's true

When I saw your smile
I could run for miles
To get to you
That's what I'd do

And if I could
And you know I would
If I only could
Take you away

You're gone
What went wrong?
I showed you how I
Felt, you walked along...

This is...the end of me
The end of me
The end of me
The end of me...
