Favorite Quote:
" Backward, turn backward
oh time in your flight,
make me a child again,
just for tonight." E.A. Allen

I can't say you're the love of my life,
but I could be happy with you.
To lie on the pillow,
watch you breathing,
let you leave when it's time to go.
I won't stop you,
Won't show you I'm sorry when you leave,
Because as long as I don't love you,
you'll come back.
As long as we're still friends,
I can stay in your arms.
As long as I'm just your friend,
You won't walk out the door.
And I can be fine with that.
I can not care.
I can smile, and wave, and show you the door.
And then I can sit down with the rest of my evening,
Ignoring the parts of me that throb and cry for something I can't have,
As if nothing happened at all.
Because I had nothing better to do,
then let you in.

For all you girls and boys who think you should do something because they seem to be the only person interested in you; don't.
