Writing is an art few people master it. -me

When I think of you,
My frown turns into a smile.
But still I wonder
Why did He take you?
You were, you are such a good guy.
You did anything,
For anyone,
Even a stranger.
You didn’t care,
You just wanted to help.
The fact that at my wedding, (far in the future don’t worry)
You won’t be there.
And when I have kids,
Who will they call Grandpa?
And if they ask me,
I’ll be,
Strong and try,
Not to cry.
But the sad fact is,
You’re gone.
Gone but not forgotten.

"I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

Keep writting

"To me, Fearless is not the absense of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death."
— Taylor Swift
