Just a little bittersweet poem I wrote one night. Originally written as a song, but thought perhaps it was too sappy.

'Leave My Heart'

I wonder why you went

To a place where I could never go

When you had everything with me

Only you will ever know

You never left me any time

To record the feeling of your touch

Where did the loving ever go

When it all once meant so much

You leave my heart, you steal my soul

And time wonít fill the empty hole

You left in me when you walked out

Just leaving sorrow, pain and doubt

But Iíll go on,

Iíll find another one

Whoíll treasure all that I will be

Whoíll treasure all that Iíve become

So when you leave, donít take me with you
I couldnít bare to leave this place
Where all the memories reside
In the beauty of your face

Your love it dripped from your fingertips
With your blind caress
And made my soul sway with sorrow
That it will never be
here again with me

It creeps to me in the cold of night
When my heart has wishes I canít fulfil
Your arms sweeten the sound of sorrow
But only Ö only until ...

... You leave my heart, you leave my soul
New love will fill the empty hole
You left in me when you walked out
No more sorrow, fear or doubt

But Iíll go on,
Yes Iíve moved on
Iíll find another one
Whoíll treasure all that I will be
Whoíll treasure all that Iíve become
