You say

November 8, 2008

You say "I love you"
But do you mean it?

You say "I'll be there until the end"
Do you really know that?

You say "I'll fix it"
Are you sure that you can, if you don't know all the problems?

You say "It's fine"
But can you say that without a tear in your eye?

You say "I promise"
Can you keep that promise?

You say "It's never too late for anything"
Do you just say that or are you sure?

You say these things that you 'don't know' are true
Every bit of it that came out you mouth was a lie

This poem was written about my dad four years ago. It still stands with the way I feel about him now.
