"It can always be worse, so put on a happy face and laugh!" (my own quote) &
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words may scar my soul."

Stay with me here
Don’t leave to go there
Don’t abandon me
Like my father Lee
Don’t let life pass you by
And remember to never lie
Stay true to yourself
Never put love on a shelf
Open you heart
Allow love to flow like a piece of art
Don’t forget us
As you board that bus
Never to return again
As a new love will begin again
We say our cheerless good-bye
Not knowing why we lie
To ourselves
As we display our memories on shelves
And I turn away
Not wiling to see you go your separate way
I cry a single tear
Overwhelmed by the sorrow I bear
Unable to see you go
I let a sob go as I fall to the ground so low
I can’t stand all you’ve made me feel
Love was never a part of the deal
You left me all alone
Like a dog’s forgotten bone
All you’ve given me was heartache
That won’t go away when I bake
You don’t know what you just lost
Or what it will cost
You just lost your heart
And it will be a bull’s-eye for my dart
You fooled me then but never again
Because you didn’t stay with us here
You left for selfish reasons to go there

You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.

This is really good. I love your rhyming after every line. Very cool :)
