My heartache


Feelings and thoughts deferred
Held back
So not to set them free
So many things to change
So many things I wish I could be

God gave me you
And I gave you grief
So many second chances
Never the man you needed me to be

Present on occasion
Absent too long
Too many miles between us
I’d drive everyone of them
just to be home

When you were mine
I was on top of the world
Now that you’re gone
Life is no longer sublime

Trying to find motivation
Living day by day
So hard to make it
To naive to see our love stray

Oh what’d I do
For just one more day
I’d live in that moment forever
I’d have all the right things to say

My past haunts me
The present taunts all that didn’t last
Trying to move forward
Only sets me 10 steps back
