What You Mean To Me by Gary R. Ferris
I remember when I met you,

At a table all alone;

I thought you were so pretty,

Shining like a stone.
I asked you if you’d like to dance,

And shyly, you agreed;

And afterwards, I kissed you,

And love planted its seed.
I really didn’t expect to see you,

Anymore after that;

But, fate would bring us together,

And you would wear my hat.
After weeks of burning desire,

We laid down to love;

For me that night was special,

And I thank the Lord above.

At first, I was very confused,

Love could this be?

My mind told me to run away,

But my heart was blind to see.
I remember rushing home from work,

To get home to be with you;

And you would meet me at the door,

And our love we would renew.
Away, alone we would go,

On trips so far away;

We spent our nights making love,

And laughter filled our days.
I remember when we first found out,

My child you would bare;

You thought I’d run away and leave,

And that I didn’t care.

Even though you were young,

It did not seem to matter;

I’d take you for my wife to be,

And let the people chatter.
Our wedding was not a masterpiece,

But every word I meant;

For me there was only one buy,

And my money had been spent.
I remember when our child was born,

How I was very proud;

My love for you had doubled,

And my head was in a cloud.
Just as sure as summer was gone,

The winter had to come;

The sounds of change and trouble,

Were beating on the drum.

The more I tried to love you,

The more you pushed away;

Deep within myself,

Is where I had to stay.
You were changing quickly,

And I was hurting more;

I remember crying,

When you walked out the door.
I believed my life was finished,

When you said we were through;

You no longer loved me,

And there was nothing I could do.
But how does one forget,

His life and all his dreams;

And watch you tear your life apart,

And your soul burst at the seams.

You may not care for me,

But I still care for you;

The Lord will be my refuge,

My love He will renew.
You’re just not some girl,

That I can cast away;

You’re my life and part of me,

Just like yesterday.
My hope is that someday,

You will come to see;

Just how much I need you,

And what you mean to me.
