I'm learning, you see.
It's never fast to achieve,
Never hard to believe.
They say it sets one free.

But, how?
It started off with fears,
ended up in tears.
What now?

I let it scare me too much.
You let it overtake your mind,
you were so hard to find.
I only wanted to touch.

But hey, hi, hello.
Now I'm yours and you're mine,
since we erased that old line.
I'm so glad, I won't let you go.

I feel my heart spinning
in great delight
when you're winning
blurring my sight

but I see my youth pass by
the future is transparent
trying to fly
faith so apparent

I taste no freedom
out here alone
bring me to your kingdom
look how we've grown

hey listen to this
the sound promises make
it's pure bliss
it's not fake

you smell nice
all the time
I cuddled you twice
I guess forever is fine

I learned to Let Go by the misty lake
while I thought confusion will never leave
every passing moment felt harder to breathe
I escaped to a moment only I can take

I learned to Enjoy by the misty lake
I'm never alone and I won't ever be
I see beauty in everyone around me
now I'm certain no joy will ever be fake

I learned to Love by the misty lake
even though I know I have nothing
even though feelings never stop flying
I still love through earthquakes

I learned to Forgive by the misty lake
life is often painful and sad
but Jesus is the only best thing I have
my faith is grounded and won't ever shake

Sara Teasdale
I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
I would empty my soul of the dreams that have gathered in me,
I would beat with your heart as it beats, I would follow your soul as it leads.

Victor Hugo
Since I have set my lips to your full cup, my sweet,
Since I my pallid face between your hands have laid,
Since I have known your soul, and all the bloom of it,
And all the perfume rare, now buried in the shade;

Since it was given to me to hear on happy while,
The words wherein your heart spoke all its mysteries,
Since I have seen you weep, and since I have seen you smile,
Your lips upon my lips, and your eyes upon my eyes;

Since I have known above my forehead glance and gleam,
A ray, a single ray, of your star, veiled always,
Since I have felt the fall, upon my lifetime's stream,
Of one rose petal plucked from the roses of your days;

I now am bold to say to the swift changing hours,
Pass, pass upon your way, for I grow never old,
Fleet to the dark abysm with all your fading flowers,
One rose that none may pluck, within my heart I hold.

Your flying wings may smite, but they can never spill
The cup fulfilled of love, from which my lips are wet;
My heart has far more fire than you can frost to chill,
My soul more love than you can make my soul forget

when does love become a friend,
after or before the end?
would it be right to cry,
if you go in a blink of an eye?

how about accepting what is,
but still desiring this?
what would it feel like,
to still have you by my side?

wonderland seems impossible now,
nothing will ever be "wow".
not when you're gone,
not when we're done.

i'll continually think about you,
how it feels to be true.
so i won't jump off that cliff,
and yet you'll forever be my what-if.

Life without God goes a little bit like this;
You get to choose whatever makes you feel good,
Which is often misunderstood,
And we get trapped into an endless abyss.
For those roots determine your way of living-
Ups feel like ecstacy,
Downs succumbs you unpleasantly,
You end up being very unforgiving.
Now let me tell you how life is with God;
You don't always choose whatever feels great,
and people might judge you for being odd.
God loves you, He chooses the best-
ever-changing feelings no longer dictate you.
Oh how He loves you, that He gives you rest.
Trust in God.
