Come Let Us Go My Broken Heart
Terry Collett 
Come let us go my broken heart
Let us depart for warmer climes
And better dames who will devote 
More time and love to you and me
And not let the weeds of discontent
Grow between the fingers of our joining hands.
Come my weary eyes let us look
Amongst the fresh and new
And see if some sweet and lovely
Can awake our sight to food of thought
Or open our view to brighter scenes
Beyond the dreary eyes of dullest lovers.
Come my tired tongue let us be still
And not over speak those words of love
That rattles in our ears but day and night
Let our words be fresh and newly made
And poured like loverís juices on the wounds of love.

Forever Lost
Holly
Why did you have to leave me?
Leave me behind with a broken heart.
I want to believe this is only a nightmare, 
But this time, we are truly and forever apart.
No dog can ever replace you
Fill that empty space inside of me
The day I got that call from the vet
Filled me with terror and grief.
I miss you so very much,
My beloved Cadet.
The pain is so intense
But the good times we shared, 
the many memories Will not let me forget.
You were more of a human to me,
Than many people I know.
You were always by my side whenever I was sad, 
Through thick and thin, sleet and snow.
Where ever you are, my friend, please hear me, 
You may be gone forever from my life.
But your soul will live on in my heart and mind, 
Until the day we reunite.

I beg to die while you still love me
Taronis -- 03

While I do the things I must and make my daily way I think of time so quickly past closing in on me You love me now but I fear as things proceed Focused plainly on the tasks I have I put those thoughts aside But alone these things fall back upon my tormented mind

My time as whole and independent will rapidly draw to close This malady reduces me to waste as I stumble in my stride Each faltered gesture nears me to my deepest horror I fear the very worst to try and fail and work and worry To be left alone and a helpless pile staring at some ceiling

First to drop what I hold dear

Then to walk a stumbling pace to suddenly walk no more Then to stumble on my words and to find it hard to reason Then to fall and to be trapped in that lonely bed My faculties withered and my soul in full rebellious treason I beg to die while you still love me

As Thirteen Years Has Passed On By... 
Julie M. Agor McIlvaine 
As thirteen years has passed on by
and I hear our songs today I still cry
I still very much hurt inside
and my love for you will never subside. 
As I drive up and down California now
I can still remember all our great times together mostly going fishing in anykinds of weathers and driving the big rig together. 
I am still sad that you have passed on
but our love for one another will never die for it lives on through my heart and mind in my dreams and memories of us and our great times. 
I am thankful for our 3 years of precious moments together. 
You my dear love will always be in my heart and mind - forever. 
"I Love and Miss You Jerry So Very Much!" 
"Thank You My Dear Love For All Our Great Times!" 
*** 
My fiancť Jerry passed away thirteen years ago and every-time still when I hear our two songs, I still cry, we had other songs, but the two really meant alot to us but I do have many beautiful memories of our three years we had to share precious cherished beautiful moments together. 
*** 
He got hit by a drunk driver in the crosswalk on Christmas Eve Night. 
We were suppose to get married on Jan. 3 his birthday 
but then he was buried on Jan. 6.   
Holidays are very hard still - especially Christmas and New Years. 
It's so strange and sad plus gets to me  how he died because he used to always tell me to be careful crossing streets... 
I used to tell him it's OK because pedestrian have the right of way... 
*** 
The song that sings: 
wherever you go... 
whatever you do... 
By Richard Marxx * Waiting For You
I will be right here waiting for you... 
That was our last song together... 
We always said, we would always be here for each other...

The Thin Line Between Love and Hate
Amy Kriozere
Iím torn up in my mind
And Iím walking on a ledge
ĎCause daily when I wake up
Hellís been running through my head
Iím the beautiful loser
Whoís been addicted to a fate
Of the love and hate youíre giving
And your pillís my bitter stake.
After daddy just abandoned
Mommy kicked and then she mauled
And now you stand erect above me
While I stand in love so small.
Thereís a thin, thin line I walk upon
Between our love and hate
Where bruising come just like youíre kissing Pain and pleasureís a mere mental state.
Letís play a game I say
So quickly you take the reigns
Your whip provides my guidance
For the control you must maintain.
No longer am I separate
The deal it has been laid
My loveís your hate weíre bonded
The price it has been paid
And though in love you walk above me
Iíll rise to see another day
For your reigns you hold
Will tie you up in knots
to feel this jagged blade.

Im absolutly crazzy for you babi

and past the rivers
to a place where you can see
