Day I Won't Forget (still haven't forgotten)

It's been 10 years......10 years since I wrote this..and 10 years since this day occurred (give or take 12 days).....but it still feels fresh on the brain. So I'm reposting this poem (as well as a few others from my past).....keeping the thoughts alive!!!

Day I Won't Forget

It was a day that started great
And ended very wild
No day like this ever existed for me
Not even as a child

The events of the day
Really started years before
Because of certain circumstances
That left alot of hearts sore

The love had been so great then
Before the year of change
When lives were destroyed
When thoughts and feelings got rearranged

On this day alot of feelings
Were lost and seemed not there
Because of the letter I wrote 2 months ago
It might've appeared I didn't care

Two months we hadn't spoken
But I saw you the day before
As me and my homegirl were cruising
And we passed by the store

Had I known then
What would go down this night
When asked if I wanted to stop
I wouldn't have said "nah, that's aight"

But this day I was hangin out
New friends I was making
But around eleven o'clock at night
I learned, your own life you had taken

People say I'm holding it all in
Because I've never cried
"You two were so close"
But my feelings I didn't hide

Some things we can not change
Like to whom we are born
So we must accept what happens
And keep moving on

A poem that I wrote

Just a little something I wrote...written BY me and needs to stay that way.  Its copyright protected biznitches...so let me find it elsewhere...and best believe...there will be penalties to pay.   Anyhow...please post your comments and also help me come up with a title.  Whoever has the best title...uhhhh I'll come up with some kinda prize. LOL


UNTITLED (as of right now)...


Where do I begin, explaining all the things that are on my mind

From the future that I want to make with you, to the things I want to leave behind

The feelings that I have are strong and I don't want to hold them back

Because if you don't go after what u want, you'll never know…my mama taught me that

See you're the kind of guy that I could see myself with for the rest of my life

Take trips around the world, hold each other down, and be your perfect, devoted wife

But being with me, you must understand that there are certain things you must know

Life has dealt me a helluva hand, and there's plenty more game to go

See my King of Spades turned out to be the Big Joker and that caused a lot of pain

This Queen of Hearts tunked out and had to start all over again

Yea life is like a game but know that I am not to be played

Many thought that was a good idea, biggest mistake they ever made

I know everybody has their issues…that's definitely nothing new

It takes true love, understanding, devotion, and compassion to make it through

But from the first time I set eyes on you, I knew you were who I wanted to be with

They say there's no such thing as "love at first sight", shit….I know that it's not a myth

Spending time with you for some reason is different, I feel mad comfortable and safe

Like I can let my guard down and that in me you have faith

I don't know if I am the total package of the type of girl that you desire

But you definitely fit the mold for my perfect man, and it's you that I admire

Not checking for nobody else, determined to make you mine

Hoping you can look past my imperfections and give me a little bit of your time

Let me show you why I'm worth a shot, I'll only need 1 attempt

To prove to you I am the perfect 1 for the job and make the other applicants exempt
