Lessons You Taught Me

I still have the lessons that you taught me
I still have the lessons that I’ve learned
Though you’ve gone and left me
And we are no more
I still have the lessons that you taught me
I still have the lessons that I’ve learned
Our time is done and dusted
But there was no mistake
For you left me with memories
And whole new perception
Though our love never lasted
The forever we talked of
And the pain of it ending
Has been cutting deep lines
I still have the lessons that you taught me
I still have the lessons that I’ve learned
Our days together
Had a lifetime of purpose
It was meant to be
For the time that we had
Though I spat some nails
When it all ended
Cried many rivers of pain
I have come to terms
With what it all meant
And why it all happened that way
And I’m very happy to say
I still have the lessons that you taught me
I still have the lessons that I’ve learned
And I take them all with me
To the future I’m making
Though you’re not there with me
And your lips will be kissing
The sweet of another
I know there is more for me
In the days of tomorrow
And now I look back fondly
On those lessons you taught me
And I’m doing okay
No make that great
For I still have the lessons that you taught me
And I still have the lessons that I’ve learned
And they’ve made me a better person
The one that you see today
