i never imagined love could be that way..
it can make you happy or gay...
this what im feeling..
when someone made an offering..
of a love that has no ending..
i am a woman..
who deserves a patient gentleman..
who wants and needs love..
that will surely stand the test of time..
so i accepted..
the love that has been offered..
i, full of hopes and dreams..
giving all my love without hesitation..
as days passed by..
something happened i can feel..
this guy that made me feel..
my dream love can be real..
walked away with his heel..
engulfed my whole being...
when all of a sudden he is leaving..
thus, tearing breaking my heart bleeding..
people surrounding me observed..
maybe you are not the man i deserved..
they said: "don't be bothered"
for a better man and love will come after..
so, i started to think..
of the times we spend together..
i decided: what should still be remembered..
to a love which isn't meant forever..
i gathered up the sworned pieces..
of what still left in traces...
my strengths; potentials and dreams..
my goals; family and friends..
now, i am recovering..
Ever determined to keep ongoing..
Continuously praying for God's guidance and blessing..
Thinking life's treasures will still be coming..
