New Way

They took her for granted

So I can’t afford to do that 

I cherish every moment

Because I know we can’t get time back

They didn’t tell her that they loved her

So I do it twice as much

The scars they left behind

I kiss softly

Forcing them to fade away

She lost her smile

And I’m helping her find it

It’s about time she knew

Just how beautiful she is

New Love

New love is a beautiful thing. There’s all the feelings of bliss. The honeymoon phase and all that. It can last for months and even maybe a couple years. Sometimes though it barely lasts weeks.

After what I have seen and experienced, I believe that new love should be nurtured for a while. Meaning that new love should have some kind of foundation. Dating can lead to new love, but dating should last longer than just a couple months. Maybe even a year to a year and a half. A foundation of friendship is one of the best ways to keep relationships going for the long run. Most of the greatest love stories start with “We knew each other for all our lives” or “We were friends for years”.

This kind of love is usually the one that lasts for a lifetime. When people say that they can’t enter relationships with their best friends because they don’t want to change the relationship, I don’t understand it. Being in a relationship should feel no different than being with someone you can call your best friend at the end of the day. I believe that being in love with your best friend is something that can lead to a lifetime of love and happiness. When that new love hatches, it will grow into something beautiful.

Rise and Shine

This is a new day

Another chance to live right

Open up the windows

And let in the sunlight

This is the epoch

Where it all begins

This is the time

To chase those dreams within

You have 24 Hours

To make your dreams come true

You’re in the driver’s seat

You choose what you want to do

These 1,440 minutes can fly by

Without you knowing where they went

Take as much as you can in

Try to savor the time spent

86,400 seconds once again

Try to keep a smile on your face

Time is of the essence

Those seconds should not go to waste

Before you head out that door

Make sure that you pray

Start off right on the beginning of…

This New Day
