Young, Sweet, Sincere… Love.

Really wish it was easy as I thought,
And no matter how I fought…
I stood back and watched fall apart.

Family life was too much to bear.
Especially when he wasn’t there,
I was consumed by hurt and despair.

We left all that together;
To find a place that was better…
And the only thing I left was a little blue letter.

With no plans and glassy eyes,
I left them with no goodbyes;
 And we disappeared in the sunrise. 

Our future is blurry,
I wanted grow up in a hurry…
We left our safety for a place less sturdy.


With the scars I wear so well,
And all the low places that I fell.
All my stories I will tell.

With mistakes he made,
The games he played…
But I still stayed

Even though it’s not laid out in stone…
I am not afraid to go;
And wish I won’t be alone.

It’ll be okay if you’re alright
And we’re together day and night;
We’re young and know how to fight.

We’re not crazy,
Just lost in reality…
And just he completes me.

Young, sweet, sincere… love.
