    After all these years
    all the pain and some tears
    cross in many fears
    even what u said to my peers

    That u loved me !

    Why ?
    why did u tell me that
    took my heart wit no slack
    playin da game like a mack

    what
    u wrong cold and unfair
    but guess what i found
    another that truely care

    No more tears / fears and pain
    she's a queen wit no shame
    and after all these years !

    After all these years
    and gallons of tears
    wasted yesteryears
    now all my fears
    are realized
    But now I found someone new
    Who is doing all those things
    that you
    wouldn't do
    Wow, and just to think
    After all these years...

    Some things just make you shake your head and wonder. Well posed Rich.

    Hey Rich
    I'm smiling because it's like
    you're looking over my shoulder.
    And after all these years.
    I find myself asking WHY all the time
    Nice one warrior

    Peace~N~Love

    all one can do is seek freedom from a load of dead weight. Thankz
