    i guess i'll never understand
    why you ran
    in your quest to become a man
    you ran
    from all of your distractions
    decided to reduce your interactions
    but kept the one most obvious
    ridiculous
    distract and lust for someone
    that you think you trust
    but from where i sit
    i just see that you're caught up

    you and i we stand alone
    and we both have to atone
    for the things that we've done wrong
    thought we'd help one another along
    but we weren't singing the same song
    because you no longer even reply
    when i come with the sparkle in my eye
    to talk to you and make you smile
    to say sit back and lets kick it for a while

    you say you have issues
    who doesn't have a lot of those
    but at least i am someone who knows
    i know all sides of the hurt
    been betrayed
    been the betrayer
    AND given birth
    so i know every aspect of that game
    that same game almost drove me insaine
    but now i'm back and smiling
    and free
    and all i see is you running from me

    i ask you again
    please don't do that
    let our friendship remain intact
    because i am someone that made it through
    and there's no doubt that you will to
    believe it or not i worry about you
    in that crazy mixed up way that i do
    but it's all from my heart
    and i say lets have a brand new start
    you and i can be real friends
    if only you'll stop running again

    Don't know why they do that?

    From one mother to another, as I think that is what you are speaking of...nothing can take away our love, but boy can those children make you want a return policy! LOL Hang on in there as a mother of an adult son, I have learned..."We can give them life but we cannot live their lives for them!"

    Blessings On Ya House!

    does saying
    "i'm sorry"
    atone for all the wrong things
    i've bestowed upon you
    does arrested cruelties
    salvage me
    from the destiny
    awaiting me

    true
    i've done some things
    ...done so many things
    to bring sorrow
    and pain
    stepped all over you
    again and again
    left that one alone
    sat that one on a corner stone

    that was wrong

    but wrong things
    are what i did
    hid
    from all the stares of disbelief
    filled with grief
    ...so much grief
    as sadness gripped me

    does saying
    "i'm sorry"
    atone for all the wrongs
    i've bestowed upon you?

    can you...forgive me,

    friend

    LET THE RIVER FLOW.
