Bottom line: we can never lose what we never had. Just toying with a concept for possible lyrics.

where do i turn to now?
where can i run to?
i'm all out of hope
and i'm all out of tears.

maybe once upon a time
i knew how...
to hold on to my dreams;
to stare down all my fears...

life was just a silly rhyme;

but then I felt it all...
drift away
like waterfalls
in distant streams;

i felt the walls begin to crumble;
lost my focus;

faded fast;

your voice a distant rumble;
vivid tremor
from the past...

i've lost my way...
and i just don't know
if i should stay
or i should go...

but i've come
to a place
where i just can't erase
the demons
that your shadows cast

and i've found
a truth
i should have known

that even love...

doesn't always last.

I've said this many a time....

good one Jeff, get your helmet on, crash proof, losing love isn't the worst thing we can write about, true or untrue. Right now I wish love was the only thing I had to write about losing.Wish I could write this high blood pressure, high cholestrol and all these poison pills I have to take off. G

Stuff like this is so wonderful adn soothing, it just speaks right things, liked the river, finally, abriged, to be a bit poetic there, thanks so much Jeff, a real admirer, Al
