Favorite Quote:
Love me or hate me, both are in my favor. If you love me I will always be in your heart, if you hate me I will always be on your mind. ~William Shakespeare

Let me start by letting you know
That it’s because of you I didn’t let go
You saved me in time to see another day
It’s because of you I didn’t run astray.

Sometimes I feel like no one understands me
Stuck in this place where I’m hated so blindly
There are so many things that I’ve been through
And I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.

I was broken
So forsaken
I was lost
And you saved my life.

I was drowning
Always frowning
But you came along just in time
And you saved my life.

I was pleading
I’d stopped believing
Nearly dying
And you saved my life.

Sometimes it seems like you’ve known me for eternity
You make me feel that I’m no longer empty
It’s you who’s my escape
Who tells me it’s ok to hate.

I’ll never find a way to let you know
How thankful I am that I’m no longer alone
And never have to be again
Because you who took away all my pain.

I was falling apart
Not nearly as smart
I almost collapsed
But then you came along
And you saved my life.

Hi! I love your poem and I would just like to ask for your permission to use some of it for a picture thing. I didn't want to do it without your consent :)
