There you lie in a pile,
like yesterdays laundry,
crumpled and discarded,
on the floor at my feet.
Still I remember all we had
A love that once was envied,
then one that was discouraged.
Now a love that will destroy,
making our future bleak.
Your face although precious,
your heart although true,
a love that gave hope...
one for a brighter day,
for me and for you....
Then all at once things changed,
you changed and the drugs took over.
You became a stranger,
and right then I knew it was over...
Instead we ran back in each others arms,
I vowed I would help you through!
You stopped for awhile-life was bliss.
Then I learned the drugs…
had not said bye to you.
So now I lie awake at night...
no longer wondering, hoping & waiting…
I ended your chapter in my life,
in hopes memories will start fading....
You were the one who at one time,
had allowed my heart to beat,
now you’re the one whose love destroys,
my love for you I cannot keep.
My hopes for you is that one day
You will chase the drugs away.
That all your pain will be over...
but still away from me you must stay.
