    ive lost my passion
    i no longer have the drive
    i once thought that the harder i fall
    than the stronger i'd strive

    i once carried the torch
    and tried to be the best
    but now im just living in the moment
    and i let my dreams go to rest

    i havent given up
    but i dont feel that hunger pain
    im just taking everything in stride
    so i wont have to complain

    i barely write a stanza
    i barely read a line
    its not that i dont want to
    i just dont have much on my mind

    i dont date much
    barely pick up the phone
    its not that im emotionally unbalanced
    i just rather stay home

    i havent shed a tear
    i havent stretched a smile
    i cant fake like im unhappy or joyful
    its simply not my style

    people want to know
    some people act like they need to know
    but i honestly dont know myself
    im just acting out whats in my soul

    so im basically saying goodbye
    not for forever, but just alittle bit
    i need an open road and time to think
    about where im going and how im goin to handle it

    its been nice and quite an experience
    ive learned so much from all of u
    but keep me in ur prayers
    and ill do the same for u

    until the next time we meet...
    g'bye

    Awwwww...

    I know we've never met, never seen each other's face
    But so many of your words have touched a special place
    When times were tough and I couldn't be strong
    I'd run to this page and one of your flows pushed me on
    I'd sit back and read and your words helped me to see
    Just how much poetry was inside of me
    So now that you're leaving finding your own path,
    I'll be praying for you til the day you come back!

    Off the top of my head that's what came to mind. You will be missed. I have enjoyed all that you've shared with this family. I wish you the best in finding what it is your looking for. Much love :kiss: :grouphug: In my prayers!

    We've known you such a short while
    But its so hard to say goodbye
    We love you like we would love our child
    Our visions and thoughts of you will never dare to die.
    You are a part of our family that we hate to see go
    And before you take that final step outta that door
    Remember that we always have love for you
    And in our hearts and minds you will always stay true.

    :heart: :heart: PLAY :heart: :heart:
