I know the Lord has a plan for us all, but sometimes, I just don't understand what the message can be.
If you come back; I'll marry you. If you break your promise, you'll break my heart
I am lost without you. I am soulless, a drifter without a home, a solitary bird in a flight to nowhere. I am all these things, and I am nothing at all. This, my darling, is my life without you. I long for you to show me how to live again.
Too many people seem to believe that silence was a void that needed to be filled, even if nothing important was said.
He finally understood that God's presence was everywhere, at all times, and was experienced by everyone at one time or another.
Yet losing him seemed unbearable. He was the one she loved, the one she would always love, and as he leaned in to kiss her, she gave herself over to him. While he held her close, she ran her hands over his shoulders and back, feeling the strength in his arms. She knew he'd wanted more in their relationship than she'd been willing to offer, but here and now, she suddenly knew she had no other choice. There was only this moment, and it was theirs.
He was thirty-one now, not too old, but old enough to be lonely. He hadn't dated since he'd been back here, hadn't met anyone who remotely interested him. It was his own fault, he knew. There was something that kept a distance between him and any woman who started to get close, something he wasn't sure he could change even if he tried. And sometimes in the moments right before sleep came, he wondered if he was destined to be alone forever.
We're not the same people we were then. We've changed, we've grown.
Me. A bad boy. For eating boiled peanuts in the graveyard. Go figure.
On the drive we talked easily, but we did make a small detour. After pulling into a rest stop, we made out like teenagers.
Nothing that's worthwhile is ever easy. Remember that.
Spending time with you showed me what I've been missing in my life.
If he weren't so damn cute, none of this would have happened.
If relationships were hard, mariage was even harder... it seemed like most couples struggled. It went with the territory. What did Nana always say? Stick two different people with two different sets of expectations under one roof and it ain't always going to be shrimp and grits on Easter.
It might seem as the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget the guy who forgot about you.
Constellations shine with light that was emitted aeons ago, and I wait for something to come to me, words that a poet might use to illuminate life's mysteries. But there is nothing.
Believe it or not, that was the first time I recognized that in some ways she was just like the rest of us.
Believe me, I'm no romantic, and while I've heard all about love at first sight, I've never believed in it, and I still don't. But even so, there was something there, something recognizably real, and I couldn't look away.
We'd met at a carefree time, a moment full of promise, in its place now were the harsh lessons of the real world.
Things changed, people changed, and the world went rolling along right outside the window.
It was funny that you know someone for years but still discover something you never noticed before.
She was a stranger now, but she'd been a friend once, and that was enough for him.
America was in full swing now, all the papers said so, and people were rushing forward, leaving behind the horrors of war. She understood the reasons, but they were rushing, like Lon, toward long hours and profits, neglecting the things that brought beauty to the world.
She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I'm sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.
What are we, after all, without our memories à without our dreams?
I may be irresponsible but I am a good irresponsible.
I'll think about you everyday. Part of me is scared that there'll come a time when you don't feel the same way, that you'll somehow forget about what we shared, so this is what I want to do forever.
I know that somehow, every step I took since the moment I could walk was a step towards finding you.
While I sleep, I dream of you, and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.
He liked her; it was as simple as that.
