    Follow your surroundings and befit them perfectly.

    Are not your surroundings the shrouding of your own skillful abilities?

    It is not forever that exists with these elements. It is us that exists forever that make them seem as though they are forever to remain

    But expect Nothing more than a moment with love or hate or fear or pain or sorrow or sadness or happiness or serenity

    Was not our birth and death just a moment of today yesterday tomorrow and the call of every single day the same and different

    So strive where strife is due in the core of your flower so it lives But does not Flemish in growing and so it does not die But stays a plant balanced with a little bit of water and a little bit of fire.

    For if you do you will have awaited an entire multitude of peace and balance

    But what mass of you will ever head or understand any of which I write?

    My memories…. Are all that’s left of you
    Memories and pieces of my broken heart
    You were the glue that held my life together
    But now you’re the hands that are ripping it apart
    How could you do this to me, I thought I was loved
    Having you was a blessing from above
    But losing you was a demon sent from hell
    Im picking up my pieces slowly, but I think im doing well
    If I were to see you again, I’d tell you how I feel
    I cant believe this is happening, it cant be real
    I pinch myself to make sure it’s not a dream
    My life’s beginning to fall apart at it’s seem
    Again all I have is distant memories of being with you
    As eash day goes by they begin to fade into darkness, an empty void
    You’re the one thing that keeps me hear in reality
    Now that you are gone im forced to suffer through this agony
    Im not myself unless im with you
    Im lost and searching for love, I don’t know what to do
    You were the hand that guided me
    The light that lit my way
    You’re constantly on my mind and I don’t know why.

    You’re running through my thoughts, never slowing down, never ceasing to a stop
    The only thing on my mind, when I lay down at night
    Is the thought of your beautiful smile and your gorgeous eyes
    Which compares to nothing, besides a start filled sky
    Wanting nothing more than to see you again, the very thought of holding you begins to boil my blood
    I get butterflies in my stomach every time you are near
    I fell in love with you didn’t you hear
    I cant help but think about you every minute of every day
    I cant get you off of my mind and I don’t know what to say
    Because you’re all I dream about, all I’ve ever wanted
    And now that my dreams have become my reality I have no idea what to do
    It feels like this has happened before, like déjà vu
    Looking, longing for the one special moment with you
    Maybe only in my dreams because angels don’t exist in this world
    Have you ever been loved by an angel….. will I have
    First she kissed me, told me she loved me
    Then she stole my heart, and traded it for hers
    I fell for you cause of her beauty and grace
    But Now its all gone
