Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

I waited for your return, but you never showed. When I finally slept, you wrapped me in your arms and apologized and said, “Everything’s going to be okay. Just keep your arms around me and I won’t let your body touch, won’t let it touch the ground. Just keep your eyes on me and let me be your gravity.” But I told you that you were lying, that you were just quoting a song, then you pulled me in, kissed my nose and whispered, “Because it’s true, and I love you. I wouldn’t lie to you; I don’t want to hurt you anymore.” And that’s when I closed my eyes harder so I wouldn’t cry and when I opened them, you were gone. Now, every time I close my eyes, I sit on the rooftop where we had shared our first kiss, in the rain the rain, in the snow, the thunder and lightning, I wait for your return……

Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.
Laugh when you can, apologize when you should and let go of
what you can’t change. Love deeply and forgive quickly. Take
chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too
short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad.
Smile when you’re sad, love what you got, and always remember
what you had. Always forgive, but never forget. Learn from
your mistakes but never regret. People change, and things go
wrong but always remember – life goes on!

I feel as though your here with me writing to me and talking to me about this i wish i could have this in my arms like you  ill wait for your return
