Everybodies Got Something
They've Had To Leave Behind

One thing I always wanted before I die
was for me and you to have one more try.
That would be my chance to prove that I love you.
I could do all the things I've waited so long to do.
I'd put my arms around you, do everything you ask me to.
But I've accepted that I'll probably die without you
allowing me one more try.
So I will just hope that you will forgive me for hurting you,
you can rest assured it hurt me too.
Forgive me for messing up every chance you gave me
to love you.
I accept your feelings that I don't deserve another chance,
that is is better if we stay apart.
From this day forth my only desire is that forgiving
will settle into your wounded heart.

Thoughts from a long time ago,
in what seems like another world.
A world in which I'm not welcome,
and rightly so.

Aw Man James, this was really sad, and very touching.

I wish you all the best,
Richy

So sad James, I couldn't help reading a quiet acceptance between the lines.
I suppose that's all we can do, or the best we can hope for.

You take care~

(big angel hugs) God Bless You, dearest friend, I send many angel hugs your way as this is so true but it shouldn't have to happen like this, why couldn't we lose something as mere as a Cracker Jack prize? (sigh) This is sad but well-written, sweet friend, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet James, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton

you should give this to her...it may not do any outwardly good, but inside, privately, I bet it would at least mean something to her to know that you are sorry....even if it doesn't let you back in, at least you told her...
