To Marcy Howard
Every person is a complex thing,
Both on the inside and what’s out,
And when you saw me standing there,
Who were you thinking about,
When I stepped off that elevator,
In that long black leather coat,
Was it me you fell in love with,
Or words you never wrote.
You know I would have never said,
The things I felt for you,
Because of things that were going on,
Yet two hearts knew what to do,
And while the clock slowly ticked,
I gave you all of me,
As we found soul mates in each,
But the price was far from free.
I gave to you apart of me,
That there’s no way you can give back,
And now it feels lonely here,
As your memory attacks,
Every day I wonder why,
And which part you really wanted,
While I have this endless dream,
And the feeling that I’m haunted.
A part of me wants to hate you,
Yet there’s no way that I can,
I found forever in your arms,
And on that one thing I will stand,
Though now a part of me is gone,
The future still will be,
And though we love each and every day,
What was it you really wanted, all or part of me.
