When summer vacation started
We got a big break from school
We played all the time
And tried to stay cool
Our hearts were filled with joy
When we got such a big break
To eat yummy ice creams,
We could not wait
We were free
To do anything we like-
Playing all the time
Or riding our bike
It was a wonderful Vacation
A big sensation
For using imagination,
A lovely creation

Now the pain has ended.
And I can only feel the worries of life creeping up to my dreams.
Those dreams that have become nightmares.
Nightmares that are no more than reality.
I have been told I act like him.
Is this true?
Will I end up like him?
The father he was to me but the father he isn’t.
Will I walk out on my family’s dreams? Only to be seen in their nightmares.
The tears stopped rolling down my cheeks.
The happiness is gaining acceptance in my cold life.
But the sorrow remains.
Not only for the tears.
For the memories I have wasted on no memories at all.

Babe, its more than a touch
I never knew so little could mean so much.
As I’m holding your hand,
My heart is racing
and the little things you say keep me pacing.
I Never want this feeling to fade,
because with you baby i got it made.
I love you with all my heart and it might not be so smart,
but there is not a doubt in my mind that you can’t be mine.
I think throughout time you will see
its more than a touch that gets me feeling so much!

Letting out my anger,
Can’t let out my tears.
Want to talk to you,
But you create my fears.
You just don’t listen,
You just don’t look,
You really don’t care,
And my heart you took.
I tried to finish,
I was not done.
A second I blinked,
And you were gone.
I wasted my time,
My heart is shattered.
With your lying words,
You had my flattered.
Pig out on my heart,
Eat everything you can take,
Because now I have realized,
That you were a mistake.

I won’t forget the day you said goodbye
All I did was keep the tears back
Now living everyday a lie
Your love is something I just cant lack
Losing my best friend and my lover
Haunts me everyday I live
Scared that I wont ever find another
that’s just how my life is
Always thinking about you girl
Thinking that the time we had
Are all pointless memories in this world
Knowing that I wont ever have them back
Seeing your face everyday just makes my love deeper
Makes it harder to forget you
Every mountain that I climb will be steeper
Without your love to help guide me through
I don’t know what I can do
Its been three months
And I’m still in love with you.

Friends are here for you when you need them,
There here for you when you’re sad and when you’re happy,
Through your ups and downs,
And when you’re having a hard time,
Friends are the one, who makes you feel special,
Who makes life a bit easier,
Who is there always through difficult times,
Friends have a bond that time cannot break,
It’s a chain that unites people together and makes friends, who they are,
A friend is someone you can count on,
A friend I know will care, love, and be there,
A friend you can depend on,
To fulfill your every need and
To be there to wipe away your tears,
Friends: the greatest thing to have,
A great accessory that’s always with you,
For now I will say thank you for everything,
For being there always,
Through the good and the bad,
You’ve helped me through everything and now to return the favor
You tell me what I should do??

Tossing cared aside
With nothing to worry about
Seeing it softly fall
I just had to get out
Pulling on a light jacket
I rush into the cold
I let my hood fall off
Not minding what I’d been told
The rain splashes an my face
Melting away the rest
I sing and skip and dance
Feeling happy and at my best
So what about you?
Must you always gain?
Forget about the rest of the world
And just go dancing in the rain.
