When Times Get Hard
I know it’s been hard for the past couple days,
We’ve seen ups and downs and have shed tears that washed emotions away.
After the verb to love to help is the most beautiful verb in the world,
Even though at times I wanted to let you go I still continued to be your girl.
Where there is great love there are always miracles,
Yet sometimes the arguments we’ve had have made me so hysterical.
Love is something eternal something we just can’t change,
And with saying that no matter what my love for you will still remain.
Love is the only thing that we can carry with us when we go and it makes the end so easy,
Yet I’ve rode this rollercoaster of love so very long that in the end it makes me queasy.
Any guy who can maintain a positive attitude without much playing time certainly earns my respect,
And for you holding on to me and taking all my shit I’ll give what you’ve wanted and my love you shall get.
Applaud us when we run, console us when we fall, cheer us when we recover.
And if we continue this love we will forever have each other.
I feel in love with you within three days which is such a sweet yet settle surprise,
Now everyday I’ve been with you this planet deep inside me has had its sun to rise.
I look out at the sea of things before me that I have yet to discover,
With a smile beaming on my face knowing I’ll never love another.
Falling in love with someone so special for the very first time,
I see a life of happiness before us and many memories of trust passing by.
I see us walking down a winding road hand in hand looking for forever,
And if we lose touch for a minute or two the love we share shall still bring us together.
Sometimes it may be hard to let go and see the light,
For when ever you let go you always need someone to steer you right.
A wise friend once told me that letting go is harder for the person left behind,
She said that if I let you go I cannot turn back time.
To all the laughs we’ve shared day in and day out,
To the times when I didn’t hear your voice and I wanted to scream and shout.
With every move I make and step I take you will forever be on my mind,
And if I let go of this love now a love like this I will again never find.
It’s hard for me to see my life without you even though it was like that before,
Yet when you make me mad all I picture is me walking out the door.
For something deep inside us burns for me and burns for you,
And with a flicker of that fire burning inside me I proclaim this love so true.
