“Trying to Forget”

By: Christina L. Osborn

8/14/08

I tried to forget you

Bet I never could

To erase you from my heart

The way I thought I should.

I swallowed the lump

Almost every single day

That made its home within my throat

It just would not go away.

I knew you were out there

Somewhere beyond the stars

Although our lives were never touching

And you seemed so very far.

I loved you then I left you

And I will always regret

That cool spring day

It’s one I will never forget.

“See ya later,” we said

With eyes brimming with tears

Neither one of us knew

That it would be so many years.

So many trials and tribulations

So many obstacles to hurdle

The pain and the healing

I could take it no further.

And then I ran, I ran, just as fast as I could

And then I prayed within my soul

You'd be there like you said you always would.

So here we are

Just the two of us again

So many years later

Proof that the heart always wins.


I’ll NEVER regret the day I left home

And hopped on a bus so all alone

With a one way ticket to the middle of where?

To a place where I knew our lives could be shared.

The road hasn’t been smooth

We both never thought it would be

But knowing and living

Never gives true light to anything.

But I promise you

From the deepest part of my soul

To love you to and to be there for you

And to make sure you ALWAYS know.

For my Precious Love;

Eddie
