love me not

tell mine ears not of thy love
mine hearin' tired a-listenin'
too many a word, too much

tell mine ears not of thy patience
mine lips could only be still
too many a-hurtin', too much

thy passion is an ember
mine body is thy fire
too many a-longin', too much

mine mind is thy strength
thy heart is mine fear
too many a-question, too much

tell mine ears not of thy love
mine hearin' might listen
might need...
...might long
might hurt...again.

a message of love

I’m here. I love you.
I don’t care if you need to stay up crying all night long. 
I will stay with you. 

If you need the medication again, 
go ahead and take it—
I will love you through that, as well. 

If you don’t need the medication, I will love you, too. 
There’s nothing you can ever do to lose my love. 

I will protect you until you die, 
and after your death I will still protect you. 

I am stronger than Depression 
and 
Braver than Loneliness 
and nothing will ever exhaust me.

lines from DEAR JOHN (that i can't seem to forget)

"Our story has three parts: 
a beginning, a middle, and an end. 
And although this is the way all stories unfold, 
I still can't believe that ours didn't go on forever."

"When you're struggling with something, 
look at all the people around you and realize that 
every single person you see is struggling with something, and to them, 
it's just as hard as what you're going through."

"I finally understood what true love meant...
love meant that you care for another person's happiness more than your own, 
no matter how painful the choices you face might be."

"And when her lips met mine, 
I knew that I could live to be a hundred and visit every country in the world,
 but nothing would ever compare to that single moment 
when I first kissed the girl of my dreams and 
knew that my love would last forever."
