DownUp +14

If you say you’ll take me back,
I’ll take you back,
if you say I love you,
I’ll be in love with you,
but I won’t interfere,
I won’t try to get my way,
because I had my chance,
and I screwed up,
I don’t expect a second chance,
but if I do get one
I promise it will be different this time around.

What Is Love

DownUp +1

What is Love?
Love Conquers all
It even catches me when I fall
That feeling inside that breaks me down and reveals my pride,
when I try to hide.
Asking that question?
What is Love?
Is it sent from the one above?
or is it a feeling that makes you feel
scared or trapped?
What is love?
Does it define you?
I may have a clue
It defines me, It can’t be complete without a two part harmony, because why?
Love Conquers All

Pretty Girl

DownUp +49

Pretty girl with gray eyes
Heart full of hurt all based on lies
She lays awake at night
Trying not to cry
But the tears steady flow
As she runs to the door
Trying to escape a world
Of hate, pain and lies
Wanting and demanding what
They can never have
“Leave me alone”
She wants to shout
But nothing came out
Just a blank look
As they scream and shout

I’m with you

DownUp +26

A lonely heart…
When I lost my hope,
When I missed all my happiness,
When I crumbled like a rotten wood,
When gasped in the deep depth of an ocean,
When I felt my life’s almost over,
When departures knocked me down,
When failures crushed me down,
When miseries flowed like a river,
When others pierced me with poisoned arrow,
when my heart failed to hold my grieves,
I heard a voice saying ‘I’m with you’,
Yes!!!The almighty strengthened me
Else, I would’ve disappeared away,
Lying in the deep depths of the earth,
and my soul wandering somewhere!!!

But You Can Now

DownUp +12

I see in your eyes the past that haunts your present
The pain and hurt are engraved into your soul
Your body is scarred by cuts, breaks, and bruises
You’re afraid to trust anyone,
But you can now

I see in your tears the cry for help in your despair
The anger and resentment are so hard for you to let go
Your heart has been broken by all those empty promises
You’re afraid to trust anyone,
But you can now

I see in your smile the beauty that you behold
The spirit of giving lies deep within your heart of gold
Your light shines upon those who walk into your life
You’re afraid to trust anyone,
But you can now

I see in your heart the love God has blessed you with
It overflows and touches the lives of those around you
You are so worthy of being supported, comforted, and loved
You’re afraid to trust anyone,
But you can now

Don’t be afraid to take my hand, I won’t ever let you go
I’ll walk with you side by side to help you get through the obstacles
Don’t be afraid to tell the truth, I won’t ever judge you
I’ll hold you in my arms and help you carry your heavy load
Don’t be afraid to let it all go, I won’t let you hold on to it all
I’ll be here to help guide you through all the ups and downs
Don’t be afraid to let yourself break, I won’t let the pieces hit the floor
I’ll be there with loving my hands catching all the pieces that fall
Most importantly…

Don’t be afraid to trust someone…You can now…

Forever Sisters

DownUp +34

We’ve been friends from the start
It’s always been you and I
I never want us to part
Never wanna tell you goodbye

We will have our fights
We will sometimes disagree
But in the end we’re alright
We’ll just let it be

You’re always there for me
I’ll always stand by you
You mean so much to me
I’ll show you that it’s true

Because we will always be best friends and forever sisters<3

Sleepless Nights

DownUp +19

I lay in this bed
Unable to sleep
Lonely thoughts and memories
Slowly my eyes begin to weep
I think about how I got here
It’s a night that I regret
I toss and turn for hours
Leaving my sheets damp from cold sweat
And I can hear all your warnings
Its an echo inside my mind
If only I could flip over the hourglass
And turn back the hands of time
I wouldn’t be in this position
Never would have crossed that line
Instead I’d be with you….
Sipping on our life slowly
Like everyday was the finest of wine
I’d hold precious moments
Live each day like its our last
But instead I’m laying in this bed….
Thinking about memories that have passed.
