Don’t Give up On Us

Don’t be afraid

Don’t give up on us

Our story is not written

We have not begun our journey

There’s a lot yet to accomplish

So honey please

Don’t give up on us

I have hope

That we can beat all odds

My faith is strong enough

I guess I carry the faith for us two

Don’t doubt a love yet to begin

Don’t run away from all this

Because believe me

We were meant to be

So honey please don’t give up on us

We can stand up against anything

I’m not ready to give up without trying

You are a part of me

You are half my soul

And I love you

So honey please

Don’t break my heart before we begin

The Guy Next Door

You are back again

You don’t know how much it took to forget you

Now it’s all back

And I don’t know what to do or say to make you stay away

I know I don’t want you to stay away

But my heart wants you miles and miles away

Because I feel the pain of watching and not holding you

I feel the pain of holding you in my heart and not asking you to stay

I want you to be mine but you will forever remain the guy next door

No chance at love but friendship

How long will I continue loving you in secret?

Incase you missed it: An Open Letter to My Secret Crush

A Letter to My Future Self

It feels odd writing this to you and thinking about all the places/people you’ve seen. By now I know you no longer live in the same house or city. Or perhaps you’re not even in the same country! It’s weird to think that you are living a whole different life from what I have right now but I am happy because you beat all odds. To be honest you are my dream come true. There’s a lot of things I hope and pray that you have managed to achieve.

I hope you have figured things out and that you are exactly where I wanted you to be. I hope your life is as perfect as I wanted but I pray that you don’t forget me, the younger version of you. I hope you have forgiven all those who hurt you and that you do not hold a grudge against anyone. I hope you managed to find love and that he is exactly the man you wanted.

I hope you moved on from the past hurt and that you have managed to forgive yourself because last I checked you were still struggling with that. Most of all, I hope you still hold dear and cherish the ones that stood by you through the storm. I hope that Jesus is still your personal Christ and savior.

I hope you’ve aged like fine wine and that you are proud of the younger you. I hope that I remind you of all the experience you’ve been through and I pray you don’t forget the lessons I taught you. It is my prayer that you don’t carry any regrets in your heart and you are still as positive and optimistic as you’ve always been.

I hope life treats you as kindly as you’ve always wanted and that you are doing the same even to those who shut the door in your face. I hope your generous acts can now be seen and I pray you don’t forget to give because once upon a time you were me and I didn’t have it all.

I feel relieved because I know you have managed to put yourself back together. I hope all the broken pieces are now back in place and don’t think about the tiny ones that failed to repair. Don’t look at the scar that’s left but if you do, make sure it still reminds you of the younger version of yourself.

Please don’t forget this: I love you and I am proud of the woman that you are. I pray for nothing but the best for you and your loved ones.

If you are not sure what to get your best friend, then this is another option to try. It is, however, important to know which genre they love. If she loves development books, for example, you might want to choose from a wide variety of published books by world-renowned authors like Robin Sharma.

A tech gadget would be the best gift for your techie best friend. Don’t worry because there are models that will fit within your budget range.

You can never go wrong with a gift voucher especially if you are considering it for your best girlfriend. The best thing about getting a shopping voucher is that you are giving your best friend the power to choose whatever they want.

9. Shoes

Buy your best friend a pair of shoes that she has always admired. You can also surprise them with something different and unexpected. Before doing this though, make sure you know their taste and shoe size so you do not get something that will be put away because it does not fit. When it comes to shoes though, don’t go for the cheapest pair because you don’t want to compromise on quality. Pay attention to all the finer details if you can.

10. Plan a trip

An adventure can also be the best birthday gift for your best friend. Think about the best places you can visit together. Custom made gifts are quite special and rare but you can also plan a trip with your best friend to give them memories to cherish forever.

Do You Remember? (Our First Everything)

Do you remember when we first met?
The day we locked eyes for the first time
Do you remember that day?
When I was too shy to say my name
But you still made me promise to call
Do you remember the day you held my hand?
Or the first words we spoke
Do you remember our first kiss?
I was nervous, you were scared
And our knees felt numb
Do you remember our first night together?
How we held each other as time passed
I cried, we smiled
But it all felt too magical
Do you remember the day we swore forever?
That day we promised to stick by each other
Do you remember our first fight?
Yet here we are, strong and free
I remember it all like it was yesterday
You mean the world to me
Being in your arms
Is a dream I don’t want to wake up from
We’ve held on strong through the storm
That’s why I’m confident about the future
We’ve shared a lot together
Since the day we met, I knew you were mine
I loved you then,
I love you now,
And I will love you
Till my last day.

You are Mine

I can’t promise you the world,

But I promise you will be my whole world.

I can’t promise you the moon or the stars,

But I promise to be true and real to you.

I’ll be lying when I say I won’t make you mad,

But I will give you the best version of me.

I can’t promise you forever,

But I will be with you till my dying day

You are mine and you will always be mine

Even if we’ll be miles apart, you will always be mine

Because I can never stop loving you

We were two before our hearts became one

That’s how I know that you are mine.

I Choose You

I choose you and I'll do it again
I'll choose you in a hundred years  
And in any dimension I will find you 
And I will choose you over everyone else
I choose you to love and to cherish 
In struggles and successes 
I don't mind our fights
Because I love our makeups 
I choose to be by your side 
Regardless of the season 
Without a doubt, I'll choose you
Over and over again, I'll choose you 
In a heartbeat, I'll choose you 
Because you chose me first 
And never gave up on me. 

Will You Ever Understand?

Will you ever understand?

When I tell you I want to be loved

That I want a happy ending with you?

Will you ever understand?

When I say I want you?

That I want to feel whole again?

No more lonely nights

I want to die knowing

The real feeling of love

Will I ever find you?

My perfect Mr. Right?

Will I ever find love?

Or is this my punishment?

Never to love and be loved?
