Favorite Quote:
I saw that- God

‘How much do you love me?’
‘I love you more than the sun and the moon’
She smiles and holds my hand
I smile back and look her in the eye
‘I love you too’

I love you
The words that mean the most
The words that hurt the most
When she’s Long Gone

The day seems so clear
The day I saw her beautiful brown eyes
The day I fell for her
The day I knew she was different

She was nothing special
She was just a girl
A girl with brown eyes
A girl with brown hair
She wasn’t tall
She wasn’t beautiful
But I saw past that
She was mine

They say beauty is in
The eye of the beholder
But I’m not the beholder
Now that she’s Long Gone

‘I will never hurt you’
She says as she holds me
“And I will be with you until the end of time’
I say as I look down at her

‘You broke your promise...’
I message her
‘I didn’t think I would feel the way
I do now when I made that promise’
Was her reply

I sit alone in the kitchen
Wondering where I went wrong
Where did I go wrong I wonder
As she’s Long Gone

My heart cracks every time I see her
My heart cracks every time she’s not near me
My heart cracks every time I see her with someone else
My heart cracks because she isn’t mine

I see her everyday
I walk past her in the halls
I sit by her at lunch
We speak on occasion
But that doesn’t mean
She’s not Long Gone
