    Loving love, as it once
    Was with you, as I sit
    Chasing teardrops
    There is nothing that
    Compares to the love
    From you
    You were my sun and
    The reason why the
    Rays shined so bright
    Even now, my love, for
    You roars like the sound
    Of thunder
    Yet, you have turned
    A death ear
    Beauty fades in love....
    As I sift through the
    Memories of you
    I keep going back to
    Retrieve them because
    One day that will fade,
    Too
    I remember you holding
    Me closely, wrapped in
    The lightness of your
    Kiss, at the peak of
    Autumn winds, as I sit
    Chasing teardrops
    We were lovers who
    Were in love
    But now we no longer
    Exist
    Love changes, life
    Changes
    Beauty fades in love...
    It's funny how love
    Volunteers you to feel,
    To fall, to laugh, to smile,
    To change, to hate, to
    Care, to ache, to cry, to
    To want, to need, or to
    Just be
    Yet, love still remains just
    That...love
    I never knew exactly what
    To say or do that would
    Take your breath away,
    But, I knew that I loved
    You to the fullest
    You were my lifeline, my
    Heart, my reason, my
    Forever even after
    Love volunteered me to
    Love you unconditionally
    Years ago, I could never
    Imagine life without
    You...I now know, as I
    Sit chasing teardrops

    love will volunteer you for some crazy thangs, but in the end you have memories and from the memories you grow, you learn, you get stronger. Nobody eva said it wouldn't hurt like hell sometimes, then again it can knock you off ya feet. Having you not wanting to eat, can't sleep, sit on the phone at all hours of night just listening to each other "breathe" and loving every aspect of every angle of everything about that person. Good to read you again.
