Get Your Desires When I Retire

Wrote this in double-dedication to my daddy and to Cody. I was in Moorea, island of Tahiti, sitting on the edge of a dock that overlooked the sea which shaded three different colors of blue. That's my island paradise, baby...and it made me think of the two most important things to me.

There are sad and sadder things in life

In this world of death and strife.

I am my familys next of kin,

And the saddest words are: it could have been.

It could have been good,

To kiss you where you stood.

To feel your lips press against mine,

The only thing that stood in our way was time.

It could have been better,

To take your life down to the last letter.

To spend with you a day, a night, forevermore,

But when you left it was my heart that tore.

It could have been the best,

To hold you up against my chest.

To spend eternity with you all alone,

Instead of crying in isolation at home.

It could have been great,

But what stepped in was fate.

Now youre gone into the heavens above,

And with you went my tenderness and love.

It could have been worse,

To fulfill my curse.

We could have never met,

Then my heart would not have set.

It could have been so many things,

But death took you away on swift, gentle wings.

I wish so badly I could hold you in my arms,

Holding you closely, and tightly with charms.

To pack my life within a single kiss,

Is a simple pleasure I dare not miss.

I dream of eternity paused in that moment,

Now my dreams are twisted and bent.

I want to hold you one more time,

I have many thoughts, but to be with you is the prime.

I want to hold you as I did in life,

The want digs deeply, as deep as a knife.

I will die in due time,

But now my life, to me, is worth less than a dime.

Why kill one who does not want to live?

It is the only thought I can give.

Death will come to take us all away,

And I wait patiently for that day

For on that day Ill see you again,

And this knowledge gives me the hope of a thousand men.

With you my life was never a bore,

It was the love I gave you to which I swore.

You have gone to a much farther place,

And I shed my tears each time I say grace.

Your death has rocked me harder than a strong wind,

It left a hole in my heart too deep to mend.

Death alone is not enough to separate us,

But brings on pain that is such a fuss.

There are still sad and sadder things in life,

In this world of death and strife,

I am my familys next of kin,

And the saddest words are: it could have been.
