SHE KNEW I’D BE ME

SHE KNEW I’D BE ME

I USED TO SAY TO MY MARIE,

I’D BE A HEARTBEAT BEHIND HER,

IF ANYTHING HAPPENED TO HER,

SHE WOULD SIGH AND SMILE,

LIKE I WAS A CHILD,

SUCKING UP TO GRANDMA,

FOR A BOWL OF SWEETS.

SHE KNEW THE TRUTH,

I WOULD NEVER LEAVE A JOB HALF-DONE,

THE PERSON I AM TAKES RESPONSIBLITY,

I HAVE PEOPLE WHO NEED ME,

MORE THAN HER IN THE NEXT WORLD…

WE WILL BE TOGETHER AGAIN,

LOVE CONQUERS ALL.

LOVE TAKES IN ALL,

IT IS NOT SELFISH.

LEAVING THIS WORLD,

AND CAUSING MORE HURT,

WOULD GO AGAINST EVERYTHING,

I BELIEVE IN.

SURE SEEMS SEDUCTIVE THOUGH.

DALE M
