    If I cried long enough
    If I loved hard enough
    It wouldn’t be like this

    I thought

    If our love was strong enough
    If our bond was tight enough
    We would always be

    I thought

    If we could just be REAL enough
    If we could love and feel enough
    We would wake up to tomorrow
    …together

    I thought.

    ****.

    it doesn't matter what i thought

    what did you think?

    deep bro'

    i've been there but i learned something from the experience. no matter what they think if you have done all that you can, you stand and allow the good seeds you've planted to reap a harvest and if it doesn't come from her rejoice because it will definitely come with the one after...

    i look at it like this. everyone i thought was it and was wrong? the next one was an increase. Never lost ground in thoughts...

    anyway this piece is tight and i think if she thought as you did then she will be there...

    just my thoughts on the poem...

    dnommo...

    THANKS for the therapy session.:) hopefully, we all get to that point...in the end. however, when we're ending a relationship--especially one that we wanted to be in--it's hard to see the GOOD that came out of it...for seeing the PAIN that surrounds us. but i'm feeling your words. KEEP A BRUTHA ON TRACK.

    One.

    bro' i thought my relationship was over and I wanted all them emotions to come up but i was numb and God said "Don't move." He worked it out and the relationship is much stronger. Those days of ending is preparation for a blessed relationship...

    Took many years for me to open up to one so i know the pain but my faith is greater than my love for another for that is where my love grows from...

    Holla at me bro' if ya need to vent...
