Favorite Quote:
“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.” -William Arthur Ward


For the woman who gave life to me,
I will forever be in your debt.
The experiences I have gone through,
I wouldn’t trade them for anything.
Every time we argued and cried in angst,
It washed me over with regret.
Every time we laughed and made sweet memories,
My vitality for life surged to infinity.
So many times alone in the corner,
We couldn’t always openly talk to each other.
Thunder in the night,
Our relationship was never predicable.
I see you,
You see me.
As time moves forward,
The hurdles stop mattering.
A present and future,
The past stands alone.
The present guides the future,
And the future decides to follow the path.
