Memories of us
Turn the happiest of days
Into times of tears.

Say What You Mean

What he said:
I love you
I'm in it for the long haul
I'm willing to wait for you, as long as it takes
I'd give up everything to be with you
Forever and beyond

What he meant:
I want you
I'm in it for as long as it's convenient for me
I'm willing to wait until I decide not to wait any more
I'll give you up to keep everything I have
Till the going gets tough.

Even though her head knew exactly what he meant,
Her heart chose to hear only what he said,
Trusting once again in the WORDS,
And now her badly broken heart
Will never be able to love anyone but him.

Two Years

Two years since we agreed to be honest
Two years since we spoke what was on our minds
Two years since you first gave me butterflies
Two years since we promised to be "in it for the long haul"
Two years since you put a smile on my face I thought I'd wear forever

And one year of having nothing but memories of us.
