I believe now

that I would rather have given up everything

that I own

than to have given up

there's always that but

in one form or the other

that I could have

kicked myself in


for not having given up everything

right then and there


I now have everything

that I own

except for you

That one jewel

that I can't have

in my treasure box

which is now overflowing

with tears

My dreams and hopes

are that someday

you'll be passed back

my way

That they won't grasp

the priceless treasure

that they will hold


there's always that but

in one form or the other...
