God does not grant courage;
only the opportunity to be courageous.

If you fall seven times
you have the opportunity
to stand up eight times.

I will lend my hand
and offer my love.

Sometimes

you cannot save someone
from them self…

Regardless,
you should try,

and keep trying
at every chance,

just in case
you can.

I will never give up.

my love is on short supply
if you care to retry
there's no need to reply
just meet me where we said goodbye.

I was blind
Again
It seems I never see
Every time
What I need to be
And when
I do
It's already over

But you
Should've told me
Not handed
Me a letter
I understand it
But isn't it better
To talk about it?

I still doubt it
Is actually real
Walking home
All I could feel
Was happy
I was not alone
I never realised
I was my own messenger
Shot down by pain

The harbinger
Of something
I never even
Saw coming
In my brain
I was almost running
Home to open this paper
Now, later, I know
That it was what
I'd least expected

Should I have
Detected
Her pain?
Maybe, but again
I never suspected
It, it just hit me
Blindsided
So happy
Then so lost and shocked
And blinded
By tears and denial

Do I deserve
Another trial
To preserve
Our feelings
Our love, while
We try to recover
Or is this it
Is it done?
Surely I'm not the only one
Between us
Who thinks there's still
A chance?

I know what to do now
I just wish you'd told me sooner
But I know it's not too late.

Give this messenger one last shot

I can't give up, I'm sorry. After everything it can't just end like this, not with how we both feel, not while there's still a chance.

I’ve torn the pages
And crossed out words
If it’s worth a try
I’m willing to rewrite
All that has been

I’ll change your goodbye
To goodnight
Turn the ending
Into the climax
I’ll go back
And start it over

Let’s just forget
About everything
The history
And mistakes

Tonight,
Let’s forget
Each other’s name
And meet again

We can ask the same questions
Laugh at the same answers
But this time, darling,
Let’s not make the same mistake

a. gale
