You Needed Me

I cried a tear, you wiped it dry. I was confused, you cleared my mind.

I sold my soul, you bought it back for me, and held me up and gave me dignity. Somehow you needed me.

You gave me strength, to stand alone again. To face the world, out on my own again.

You put me high upon a pedestal. So high that I could almost see eternity. You needed me, you needed me.

And I can’t believe it’s you, I can’t believe it’s true. I needed you and you were there.

And I’ll never leave, why should I leave? I’d be a fool, ’cause I’ve finally found someone who really cares.

You held my hand, when it was cold. When I was lost, you took me home.

You gave me hope, when I was at the end. And turned my lies back into truths again. You even called me friend.

About jeneanecommonplacebook

What Is a Commonplace Book? A commonplace book is someone’s personal collection of quotes, witticisms, observances, poems, and even graffiti that have inspired them, made them laugh or touched them in some way. Many famous people throughout history have had commonplace books, such as Thomas Jefferson, John Milton, Mark Twain, Henry David Thoreau, and the scientist, Carl Linnaeus. I began my commonplace books while I was in junior high school in the early 1970’s and so I have almost 50 years of quotes about such a wide variety of topics told in ways more eloquent, wise or humorous than anything I could ever come up with. And it’s wonderful that in this type of blog, I can also include some of my favorite artists and their artwork as well. I'm almost 60 years old with a daughter, 3 granddaughters, and a kitty-cat. I live in beautiful Bay City, MI. I have 2 associate degrees with additional college credits and hopefully I will be able to complete my goal of obtaining my Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. (Life keeps getting in the way). I enjoy literature, horse racing, baseball, NFL football, The Olympics, astronomy, history (particularly Irish), art, old movies, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Unit One, science, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, U2, The Doors, oh and so much more! I have very eclectic and prolific interests. If you would like to check out my personal writings, please go to
