    I know we been goin out for a while
    And if I could, I would go for that extra mile
    But I'm just a child
    And I have yet had my chance to run wild

    I don't think I can go on with you without hurting you
    And before I make that vow to you
    I want to be sure my active ways are through

    I don't want to hurt you no more than I already have
    But I got to tell it to you right ......I don't know how to behave
    I can't commit to a relationship like the kind you gave
    And I know you are brave
    So don't cry about my decision in this road so pave

    I'm am not the kind of person I show you day in and day out
    I don't want to see you pout
    When I'm tired with you and I go to another one hot
    I am not
    A ***
    Don't get me wrong....I just want to test the waters on the other side of the boat

    I remember when we first met
    At that corner is where I set
    You walked passed and that was the first time I discovered myself being wet
    I didn't know then that you would be my first love and yet
    I am stuck here with regrett
    And that is something I won't and can't let

    I won't let meyself use you in vain anymore than already
    And I can't describe the love you already payed me
    But I have to you leave you right away baby

    I shall no longer hold your hand
    And think of other men
    I shall no longer commit sin after sin
    With other people's best friends
    I wish I could take these feeling away and make them then
    But I can't and I'm stck without words again
    I prayed for God to send
    me a helping friend

    He send me you
    And before long we became more than friends though
    I wish we weren't but those feeling came along before
    Any of us could stop thinking of each other more
    So I writing this letter here cryin' on the floor
    Because I don't think I will forgive myself if I broke your
    heart.....cause it's you I adore
    So, before this relationship becomes a bore
    I would rather hurt myself than you.......the one I adore
    It's you I want to find more
    It's you I want to soar
    And if these things don't happen for me on your face don't let the rain pore
    Because at least I had it once with you the one I adore
    My heart is wore
    To the bone
    But I wish for you not call me on the phone
    And be alone
    Because I know if we have contact we would only bone
    And that is one thing that I can't take so I'm gone

    :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    wISE WORDS FROM A YOUNG ONE!

    It takes a woman to admit...
    that it is time to quit
    To show respect and not neglect
    You give them the chance to escape...
    Don't wait until the heart is open wide
    and he has thrown away all his pride.
    It will only make it hard for the one
    who will one day win his heart!
    So I praise you now my sister
    for letting go of that mister!
    TODAY YOU ARE A WOMAN!

    BLESSINGS ON YOUR HOUSE!
