Meant It All

October 8, 2008

The plan so simple, but so easy to ignore.
The places we went, standing there on the floor.
My hands grasped at you, and swatted away others.
Falling down, my words condemn me.
I meant it all.
I meant it all.
All I taught, all I came from.
I meant it all.

The cityscape bore as much beauty as you.
The plans I held would make us rise above it.
Under the water my eyes not so clear.
Under the sky my mind not so clear.
Attentive, but never when required.
Dismissive, but not at a good time.
I meant it all.
I meant it all.
All I shouted, all I demanded.
I meant it all.

Trees tumble down and the road is clear.
My sight shifting from different things
I held that which brought it all into focus.
I wondered if you could still hear me.
I soon realized I was clinging to nothing.
Your grace so far removed.
Your words burning.
I meant it all.
I meant it all.
All I killed, all I grew.
I meant it all.
All I taught, all I dismissed.
All I demanded, all I ruled.
All I saw, all I broke.
I meant it all.
