Say yes, and we could surf the highest waves,
Your hand in mine, never losing faith.
We could climb Mt. Everest, and as we gasp for air,
You'll say you love me,
And I you.

We could do handstands in the sky,
And you'll catch me when I fall.
I'll take you to the stars and leave you in utter awe.
And though standing on a comet with you is absolutely reckless,
Loving you is even more so; but I'm happily helpless.

Say yes, and some days will be not only spring,
But we will endure the harsh days winter will bring.
Together we will face somber rainy days,
But with you by my side we can wait for summer's sunny rays.
We will know what makes each other cringe,
But hey, we'll take it inch by inch.

And though some days you will be too tired to fly with me,
I will heal your broken wings.
'Cause our love will exceed that of the highest degree,
And we will take willingly what life brings.
So say yes,
And take my hand; we will learn to tango.
Every step we will master.

the one
i love with all my might
the one
I'm thinking every night
the one
that helps me make things right
the one
I dream of when i sleep at night
the one
I think of when i hold my pillow tight
the one
I'm not giving up without putting up a fight
say this poem to the one you love :)

Love a lady and you will have a princess.
Love a lady and accept her flaws and you will have a queen.

Love a man and you will have a prince.
Love a man and accept his flaws and you will have a king.
Love someone for who they are and you will be surprised how happy you will make them :)

Super heros are always the ones saving the day
but anyone can be a hero
Just by a simple smile and "have a good day" to a stranger
A hug to someone who is sad
an "I love you" to the ones left out
A simple compliment like "nice hat" or "I like your smile" can make anyones day

All it costs is a little bit of time
Just to show that anyones day is made by simple things that doesn't cost much and even if it doesn't benefit you physically. Emotionally you will be benifited with a warm heart and a smile :)

Depression is a killer
a drug that will **** in the end and only needs to be taken once

Depression is a destroyer
a disease that eats at your heart

Depression is a demon
consumes your life and destroys your happiness

Depression is a monster
caused by an endless amount of pain emotionally or physically past a persons limit

Depression is the grim repear
can take away life because of small and continuous amounts of pain caused by the ones that are supposed to love and care for you

a sad disease that is common

A sad time for all those that do right but get nothing but a blade in their back

A life that will end quickly that no one will even try remember
just cause no one gave that person a chance to be loved

Just cause of a disease called depression

How do you know when your love is true and that you are not just fooling yourself? How do you know that you are not merely infatuated with each other? How do you know that this is a relationship that has lasting power? The truth is that these are only questions that can be answered with experience. It may take a few bad relationships before you know how to be in a good one. Another tip is to try to use your head before you get your heart involved. If it makes sense on paper, chances are it is a good decision. It is only when you ignore the warnings that your brain is giving you that you may get into trouble.

I wrote your name in the sky
but the wind blew it away

I wrote your name in the sand
but the waves washed it away

I wrote your name on my heart
where it will stay forever
