You don't know what you have until it's gone [To Mick From Taylor]

My story is bringing out my poetic streak. Be afraid, I can't write poetry to save my life.

It's true what they say you know,

You don't know what you have until it's gone

Which makes it even harder to let go.


Conversations playing my head after all these years,

You don't know what you have until it's gone

Why can't I stop these tears?


Reminiscing about our lives how it was how it could have been

You don't know what you have until it's gone

I was blinded by the present not what I should have seen.


You're always in my dreams but dreams have to end

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

It makes it harder for my broken heart to mend.


Time doesn't heal anything especially not this ache

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

Even though I seem strong for our daughter’s sake.


In the end there is the end but do our spirits live on?

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

I know deep inside our love was so much more than a con.


I pray to see you in heaven when I die

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

You were my first love my soul mate not just some guy.


Someone like you deserves to be alive

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

But never into the fiery lake of hell will you dive.


I'm not saying you were perfect I'm just saying you were to me

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

It doesn't matter if no one else thinks so, I will always see.


And as you lay there, vulnerable for the first time

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

I was just glad that for the short time we were together I could truly call you mine.


If I'd have known before I met you that you were going to die

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

I would have killed myself first because you died because of me; I'm not going to lie.


I somehow can't let go of the past

You don't know what you have until it's gone.

If only our last kiss hadn't been our last...
