I miss the times when our hands alone could complete our hearts, the times your fingers fit perfectly into mine.

The times that seem so far away, the times from a timeline that I can no longer put together even with both of my hands.

"We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And times are forever frozen still"

- Ed Sheeran, Photograph


I wished for so many things for you and nothing sums up those wishes better than this song by Benjamin Francis Leftwich

"I could live in a different place
With a different house and a different name
I could sing you your favourite song
Yeah, you'd sing along, you'd sing along

I could wrap you in your favourite clothes
And kiss your face just so you know
That I'm the one who has got your back
Now turn around and don't be sad

I hope you find the love that's true
So the morning light can shine on you
I hope you find what you're looking for
So your heart is warm for ever more"



Don't close your eyes
I wouldn't know where to look

Don't lose your smile
I wouldn't know where to find my happiness

Don't stop breathing
I wouldn't know what to cling to

Don't stop dreaming
I wouldn't know where to put my bets

Don't stop loving
I wouldn't know why I'm here

Don't ever leave
I'd have no home to run to

That was all I ever asked for...

“I've come to realize there's a world of difference between knowing something happened, even knowing why it happened, and believing it.” 
 Gayle Forman, Where She Went



The place that sells dreams,
bought our reality.
I grew up with you,
But I'm growing old without you

You and I still collide,
and yet we never meet.
My heart is empty with love
But my mind is filled with memories.

I'm your mess,
you're my misery.
I find your arms in my desolation
and a humbling loss in my ovation

And although I want to die for you,
I'm afraid that I won't live for you.
If I let you go,
will you still stay?
The day I found you,
was the day I truly lost you.
