Drunk poem

I wrote a poem just for you
  one night while I was drinking
 It’s full of all the things I feel
  and some were without thinking
 My poems will tell you how I feel
  while others leave you guessing
 This one is the craziest yet
  ‘cause it comes with just a blessing
 Did you think you were just something
  to help me pass the time
 Maybe you thought that you were here
  to fit inside a rhyme
 Or to fill a void someone has left
  deep within my soul
 But you were here in my life
  to play the smaller role
 You were here for me to enjoy
  for what little time I had
 And meeting you has changed my life
  and made it not so bad
 Although the day will have to come
  that I leave you far too soon
 You’ve made me feel so special
  like I lassoed YOU the moon
 The things you said on lonely nights
  to make me want you more
 Lessened all the painful things
  I’ve been through once before
 So just about the time you feel
  life has given you such angst
 listen to these words I write
  just to tell you thanx!
 Thanx for all the times I was
  a thought inside your head
 Thanx for changing how I feel
  And wishing I were dead
 Thank you for the second thought
  When all your day was through
 The things you said to always show
  Just what I meant to you
 The fact that I could never be
  The one to share your heart
 I can only tell you where you went wrong
  And with others where to start
 My journey has been long now
  And I fear I have to say
 Not having someone in my life
  Has sent me on my way
 The way I know the story goes
  And reasons as to why
 A lonely day within my life
  Would make you want to cry
 But every day I continued on
  As if it were my last
 Running from the things in life
  And the bad things in my past
 But all the running was for not
  Cause things they have their way
 Of coming back to haunt you
  On any given day
 So as I sit and drink alone
  I think of times we shared
 The times you could’ve made me see
  how much you really cared
