THE DAY MY SOUL DIED

MY FIRST LOVE

I had the greatest feeling the other day,

that you loved me in a huge way,

you looked into my eyes,

and kissed me.

squeezed me tight,

and said you'll miss me....


Nothing could have prepared me for this day,

I wanted to go back in time and say...

please don't leave me!

Don't go away!

Don't move out!

Please just stay!

Don't leave me behind,

Pack me in your bag,

I love you so much,

Please don't make me sad....


My heart broke into a billion pieces that day,

Even more so... watching you drive away.

The tears wouldn't stop coming,

It was a river running wild,

I couldn't talk for days,

Because of the pain,

And instead I just withered away...


The days turned into weeks,

And the weeks turned into months,

And the months turned into years,

And it dried up all my tears.


Time started passing,

It allowed my heart to heal,

I never heard from you again,

And I often wonder how you feel.


It was years ago since I last saw you,

Though time has passed me by...

There's not a day that I don't think of you,

And remember all the things that we've been through...


We were really young back then,

Young, Wild, and free...

Just being our little selves,

Just you and me.


Our parents knew of our relationship,

They saw how close we were,

They saw how much you loved me,

And they knew that it would hurt.


I remember when we were saying good-bye,

Our moms began to cry....

It was a sad moment for me,

And inside I wanted to die...


I relive that day over and over,

Because it hurt so much...

I can still remember your face,

When we began to cry...

You wiped my face dry of tears,

Kissed me, squeezed me, and told me good-bye!

You ran to the car as fast as you could,

Because you didn't want me to see you cry.

You screamed out the window "I LOVE YOU RENA!"

As I stood there waving good-bye...
