    i've been goin through alot lately...but anyway i just wanted to stop by and leave a song that i wrote about one of my experiences...


    Verse 1:

    things were workin out 'til
    seemed like you didnt like how i tried to feel
    you stopped comin' by like you used to
    phone calls decreased I felt like you weren't mine


    Chorus:

    But i'm still grateful
    for what you taught me baby, though you did it effortlessly
    but i'm still grateful
    made me love me for myself and depend on no one else but me
    but i'm still grateful
    don't regret being your baby, it was a needed experience
    but i'm still grateful
    know that we ain't meant to be, but i did need you baby


    Verse 2:

    intimate times with you , i'll remember forever you
    don't know if you'll remember me as a special somebody
    you may toss me in the pile, with the others you forgot
    and although that may hurt, i'll remember how you

    Special Verse:

    made me stand
    in the mirror naked
    and look at myself
    and you said i was beautiful
    you probably don't remember that
    but i can't even be upset
    i'm still grateful for how you handled me


    Chorus:

    but i'm still grateful
    although we weren't workin' out, boy i still enjoyed your style
    but i'm still grateful
    gave life lessons unto me, i couldnt get from no one else
    but i'm still grateful
    don't regret givin' my body though in time i'm sure i will
    but i'm still grateful
    for right now i'm feelin free, but i did need you baby

    this was really sweet
    and heartwrenching

    after reading this
    I realized how much
    I've been missing
    the way you put music
    in the air...
    within this forum

    Nice reading you again!
