When I Think of You
The romantic in me wants to remember
All the good times we had,
All the laughter and all the fun,
The gentle quiet moments spent in each otherís arms.
But thatís not what I remember.
I remember the inexplicable tears,
I remember that you never believed in me.
I remember begging just to get you to look at me.
I remember being scared all the time.
I remember feeling so alone.
You may have loved me,
But you never supported me.
You never stood behind me.
When things got tough, you always wanted to run.
Pack up and leave.
You couldnít understand that I canít do that.
My life meant something to me,
My family, my friends,
Theyíre not objects, theyíre people.
You canít just go to the store and buy new ones.
I wanted to make a life for us.
I wanted to have a family and be happy.
I wanted you to be a part of that.
But you wanted to go.
Okay, Iíll live.
But donít think you didnít hurt me.
Donít think that it still doesnít hurt.
It took me a long time to love in the first place,
And itíll take even longer for me to love again.
