My texts and poetry

Already 10 Years of Love (2003)

For 10 years, I've been searching the words to let you know how much you changed my life.
I found you when I was vulnerable, immature, young and wild.
Throughout your songs, I found indescribable strength.
You always made me feel like someone I could achieve and become.
Now I look back then when I was so lost,
I couldn't think straight and I take a look in the mirror now.
Because you saved my world when I was 12,
I was able to go on and become the 22-year-old woman that finishes her studies soon.
It wasn't always easy, I know.
I would listen to these beautiful songs of yours and always go to sleep happy.
You may not know me, I may not know you beyond the personality you show to the public.
But, I feel in my heart that I can always count on you to make me feel safe and strong.
I have faith in your power to save my life again someday
Like you brilliantly did 10 years ago.
I will never take you for granted and you can always count on me
To let you know that your music brings joy to poor little hearts like mine at 12 years old.
I don't know if I can call the sentiment I have for you as "LOVE"
But the connection I have with the meaning of your lyrics will always be within me.
Destiny put you in my way and I'll be forever grateful to you, Jon, for changing my life
And bringing me such joy when I'm able to see you live in front of me,
Bringing me to a place I never want to leave.

Thank you for being in my life,

Your devoted fan,
Marie-Hélène Cyr
