If You Only Knew

When I first meet you I still believed in love The kind of sweet love Only a little girl dreams of When I first met you It was like a dream come true Nothing could stand in our way I believed in us, I believed in you I trusted you with all of me I let you see this broken heart I let you see this naked soul You'd catch me if I fell apart I look back on those moments And wonder how foolish could I be Although I gave you my all You didn't feel the same for me That love that I was dreamed of Is nothing more than a plaque on the wall A decorative piece to fill in the space Something cheap you buy at the mall And that's the end No reason to cry or be sad Something you took for granted You'll never know what you had

So sad Sally, I truly hope that you’ve found love, a love that you are worthy of… Belle

actually Belle, i ended up back at the same place. we stay at two separate ends of the house. i have almost given up on love. lol. I'm alone all the time. oh, i wanted to tell you, my dog passed away 2 years ago. i had her for 17 years. she was my everything. her name was Tara B'elle. it was long for Terrible. as i was typing your name earlier, it made me think of that. God bless you for your concern. just pray for me
