I fell in love with you.

it will be to find the one who is.

Love… Why does it hurt?
Why does it ache?
Maybe because we love too much and too deep that
sometimes we forget to keep a little for ourselves…
sad but true.

is the one that last the longest,
hurts the deepest and feels the strongest.

that you wish you could be.

at exactly the right time,
but I mean nothing to you and I don’t know why?
