heart broken

If I’d Never Met You
If I’d never met you,
I wouldn’t feel the pain
Of losing your sweet love;
I wouldn’t feel insane.
But if I’d never met you,
I wouldn’t know the pleasure
Of ecstasy’s warm gifts
And memories to treasure.
Now moving on with life,
I force a wistful grin,
Questioning what went wrong
And wondering what might have been.

Farewell My Love
Is it really true our love is over now?
Can it be time for us to say goodbye?
Too soon, it’s much too soon, my love, for me;
You smile with ease, but I can only sigh.
We’ve shared our lives and given so much love;
I can’t believe we’re really going to part;
You’re moving toward a new life without me;
I’m left with scars upon my broken heart.
Go on now, if you must; I’ll get along;
How much it hurts, I don’t want you to know.
I’ll set you free without inducing guilt,
But as you leave, the silent tears will flow.
I can’t be mad; I love you way too much;
I’ll hide my sadness now, so you can’t tell.
Sweet happiness is what I wish for you;
Farewell my love, I hope that you fare well.

Is This What Love Is?
Is this all we have together?
Is this what love really is,
Yelling through a quarrel
And making up with a kiss?
Why can’t we get along?
Why do we have to fight?
We starve true love by day
And feed lust all through the night.
I wish we’d settle down;
I wonder where peace went.
Why do we pick at each other;
Why can’t we be content?
If this is what love is,
If tenderness has flown,
I’m thinking more and more,
It’s better to be alone.

You Were My Everything
You were my everything;
Now you’re gone.
I don’t have the strength
To carry on.
Skies always seemed sunny
When you were here;
Now there’s nothing but gloom
In my atmosphere.
I loved you so much;
You were all I had;
Now my whole world
Is depressing and sad.
I’d like to start feeling
Other than blue,
But you were my everything,
What can I do?

Is It Enough?
When we converse, it’s just surface stuff;
We say some words, but is it enough?
We get along; we rarely fight,
But where is the spark, the joy, the delight?
We’re settled into the same routine;
Sometimes I’d like to flee this scene.
Everything’s easy; we don’t have it rough,
But sometimes I wonder: Is it enough?

If Raindrops Were Tears
If raindrops were tears
And it rained every day,
The rain couldn't wash
My heartache away.
You're still my ideal;
My love never dies,
But it cuts to the bone--
What I see in your eyes.
You want me to stop;
You want to be friends,
But you'll be my true love
Until breath and life ends.

Now That You’re Gone
Now that you’re gone, I realize
How much you meant to me.
My loss is wide as a starless night sky,
And deep as a stormy sea.
I miss the comfort of your sweet love,
Your absolute devotion;
Now I’m a fountain of endless tears,
A pool of sad emotion.
They tell me I should move on with life,
That time will heal my pain;
I smile and nod and agree with them,
While I slowly go insane.

If Only
If only I had done the things
That keep true love alive,
I wouldn’t have to acknowledge now
That our love cannot survive.
If only I had described to you
The joy you brought to me,
Instead of bringing you complaints,
You wouldn’t have set me free.
If I had touched you, kissed you, Love,
If I had loved you stronger,
If I had appreciated you,
We would have lasted longer.
If I had often said to you,
"It’s you whom I adore,"
Perhaps you’d still be with me now,
If I had told you more.
If only I had treated you
As if we were best friends,
I wouldn’t be alone in grief,
As our faded love finally ends.
If only I didn’t have to say,
"If only, my love, if only,"
I wouldn’t be all by myself
So sorry, sad and lonely.
