You are the inspiration to my poems
The reason for the lovely melodies I sing
And all the hymns I resonate as I give thanks for having you in my life
You don’t have to be near for me to feel you because I carry you in my heart
I’ll forever cherish the day you walked my path
Because of you I know how it feels to love and be loved
You are the one I choose to stand with
The light of my life

There’s more where that came from
A bleeding heart was only the start,
The tears you cried late up at night,
Sad songs you sang till the morning rose,
Not that you’re weak-but let them continue to speak,
Had your heart broken and your love taken for granted,
Wore a smile every morning and faced the world even when deep down you wanted to pour out your heart and hope it eases the pain,
There’s more where that came from
I’m talking about your fierce,
Your ability to carry the whole world on your shoulders while making it look easy,
Let she be celebrated for her admirable super powers,
For she’s a superwoman

Maybe it's the way that I catch you staring when I open my eyes and the sunlight has come alive
Or it might be the fact that you smile,and my whole world catches fire
They told us love is an imagination
But everytime you hold me near it becomes certain, you can't really give love a defination
They can't solve it- it's a feeling not a calculation
I know a place where we can be
A place where lovers are soaring free
Where you can be mine and I'll be yours
Where loving you becomes a way of life
I know a place where heartbeats race
A place Where cupid's grinning late at night
Where you'll be my knight and I your light
And loving you is just a way of life
When someone gives you that feeling you can't usually put to words,stop trana explain it and let yourself feel free-make loving a way of life

When your heart is broken
And you couldn't make them stay
You don't have to feel that way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray

When self doubt weighs in heavy
And you dont know which direction you heading
Guidance is on your way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray

Sometimes days don't get easier, but that doesn't mean it has to be the end
Did you know you'll get stronger from those days?
You'll get the answers as to why you lived those days
If you kneel and pray

I didn't mend this heart on my own
I kneeled down and I prayed
I didn't make it this far on my own
I kneeled down and I prayed
So if you feel that way
Don't be lost- don't stray
Just Pray
When days are dark and everything seems to not be going your way, PRAY

When it gets too much and I feel like giving up, I remember why I started in the first place
Remember how I crossed boundaries for this
I used to skip class and catch rides with strangers for this
Broke mama's heart and papa's trust on the way
Broke a couple church rules,I became a mess everyday
Did  it Just so I could fill the empty void in my heart
Did it just so I can start counting checks not test marks

I might be falling but it's not in love
I love love but not romantic love
Scared to feel the pain again,scared to be taken for a fool again so I hold back whatever I feel cos
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Made you buy my faviorite wine,promised you to come dine with you and give it a try but I never arrived
Turned off the phone, Turned off the lights and went to sleep with my concious killing me
I should've called and told you I'm not game for it, left you in vain! wanted to come but I was too scared I might fall in love again
I don't wanna fall in love- dont wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Stood you up and I did the same to him and him and him too.
Gave him a kiss and promised to be back before sunset but that was a lie too
Went to bed with the thought of what could've been if I went back there
Maybe he might of given me the look that he gave me when I opened the door and saw him for the first time
I wouldn't know because I was too scared to go back
Scared he would kiss me again and this time I'd drown deeper and ask if I'm a keeper and we might just fall in love.
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

Told me you were coming so I said I'd be right here when you get here
Promised you attention and maybe a little bit of my affection but you got here and as soon as I felt  an attraction I turned around and never looked back
Acted like you were not here- Dawn came and I left you sleeping on the couch all alone
No goodbye, no words from daytime till dawn just the confusion in your eyes and fury that calmed each time you were taken away by my still fresh face I wish I could say I was sorry but that would start another love story
I don't wanna fall in love -I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

I'm in love with love but not romantic love
This could've been a love letter to the one
But  it's just a broken love letter about the broken hearts I have caused because
I don't wanna fall in love- I don't wanna cry again- so I break hearts instead

wrote a poem then I deleted it
Turned it to a song, - lyrics and beat didn't match
Ran out of ideas,creat - ivity blur
I'd call but "Pride" said don't tell him how you feel
And if he felt it too he'd put you on the line first
Butterflies are rare but in my stomach there's plenty
An athletic heartbeat- can you feel it racing?
Promise to catch my spark, Promise to be my star
Shine your light on me when it get's too dark,when days get tough,and it no longer feels like a walk in the park
I said Promise to catch my spark and Promise to be my star
Sit and wonder till you can wonder no more
Cos here in my heart lies a place you can always call home
I don't know what the feeling's called but I know your name is "crush"
