The Letter: 'You Were Once All Of Me'        

 

         

 

Dear Other,        

 

         

 

Our eyes had always met in split seconds of time        

 

In mutual joy        

 

In mutual joy.        

 

         

 

I used to put your love first in word and rhyme       

 

When we were near        

 

We were near.        

 

         

 

Our hearts were once connected in body and mind        

 

And we would play        

 

We would play.        

 

         

 

We'd cut out paper dolls together and laugh all day

And laugh all day

Laugh all day.



Then life took a cruel turn that I could not foresee        

 

And I pushed you away        

 

Pushed you away.        

 

         

 

And when you came near  to me again to play      

 

Iíd turn away        

 

Turn away.        

 

         

 

Itís nothing that you did, or least of all said       

 

You were not to blame        

 

Not to blame.        

 

         

 

And now your heart goes cold when someone draws near      

 

I wonder why        

 

Then I remember-       

 

         

 

Iím the beast

Who pushed you away
 
So long ago       

 

Pushed you away.        

 

        

 

And Iím sorry for that, I'm sorry today

I'm sorry today        

 

sorry today.       

 

         

 

You were once all of me, now that has died

Now that has died

That has died.
