You were the first to make me see
by bringing me down to my knees
The first to ever let me know
by letting feelings freely show
The first to ever steal my heart
by giving each and every part
The first to ever make me "feel"
by showing me "it" can be real
The first to ever make me give
gave all I had, for you I lived
The first to make me feel true Love
and make it feel quite "from above"
The first to break my new found heart
by smashing each and every part
The first to ever make me cry
and wish and hope and pray to die
The first to make me clearly see
how "gone" a "gone" could really be
The first to give, the first to take
did you know a "man" you'd make?
It took me years to realize
it was a "blessing" in disguise
But you're the one who really made
the man that I've become today
You're the one who gave me "heart"
I did'nt have that at the start
I could'nt "feel", untill YOU came
I could'nt cry, until YOUR name
I could'nt give 'till I recieved...
all the things YOU gave to me
I knew not Love, untill YOU "showed"
I knew not pain, untill YOU "told"
I was not whole untill YOU "gave"
untill you gave AND "took away"
Without OUR time I would not be
all the things YOU have made me
For all these things I still Thank You
showed me I only THOUGHT I knew
You were the first and last to see
the "me" before, you "set me free"
For all the things I learned from YOU
I dont regret once Loving you
You left and went to someone new
to someone else who "needed" you
But without this I could not be
the man today, you've made of me.
For all the Love, heartache, and "firsts" that you taught me... Thank You Jackie.
Life is what you make of it... Not what you let it be
