»you live in me«

by MmaphelaLylian Kgatla, May 13, 2009

I woke up this morning,
hoping to hear you whispering to me,
I woke up hoping to hear you say good morning,
but you were not there,
some say I will see you again,
some say you will never come back,
some say you live in me,
but do you?
I then had to smile for the possibilities of seeing you,
oh how I hope is true that I will see you again,
believing that you live in me made me realise that I have to give more so I can be that in other people when I'm gone,
I know you live in me, that's why I smile when I think of you,
when I'm gone I want people to think of me and smile,
when I'm gone I will live forever
when I'm gone I will live in you,
in your heart.

Yesterday I forgot about your birthday, / That does not mean we are no longer friends, but that I'm growing up, / Today I forgot about your promotion, / That does not mean we are no loner family, but that I'm growing up, / I'm still the friend, partner you know and appreciate, but just grew up, / If I  sign in to read more »

»Loving you«

If I did not say I love you yesterday, / That does not mean I don't, / / If I did not say I love you today, / That does not mean I don't, / / If I don't tell you that I love you tomorrow, / Don't faint, because that does not mean I don't, / / I love you more when I don't tell, / I appreciate you more when  sign in to read more »
