    Don’t settle for anything less than someone who loves you. Don’t love when you’re lonely, love when you’re ready. Don’t think that it happens all the time, either. Holding hands while walking down a high school hallway isn’t love. Real love is hard to come by, but it comes. Maybe not for a while, but it shows up at some point. All of us are loved, but sometimes that person you want isn’t in your life yet, don’t worry, they will be.

    So if you don’t know… I Love you
    Trust me, I know exactly how it feels to cry in the shower so no one can hear you
    Waiting for everyone to be asleep so you can fall apart cause it’s all you can do
    And everything seems to hurt so bad you just want it all to end, I know exactly how it feels, and you just have to pull through
    So never trust someone who promises you forever because it’s just a 7 letter word, but so is leaving
    And they say they offer a lifetime when they know it’s really just for a season
    It is not always a bad thing for you to be challenged by life and to struggle
    However, as you go through these times, you have to be careful not to lose yourself in the process for it’s a constant juggle
    So if you don’t know… I Love you
    Cause the best relationships are the ones where you’re both making each other better people
    It doesn’t make sense to be in a relationship where you’re constantly dragging each other down and can’t at least see each other as equal
    So let it go, because it’s for the best
    I don’t know why you would even want to settle for less
    Find someone who will stamp your name into the back of their eyelids and every time they try to sleep all they see is you
    It’s what you really deserve and you have to believe it’s true
    So if you don’t know… I Love you
    I also know that the path to a woman’s heart was through the soul of an honest man
    So I will be 100% honest with you, and will love you always, that’s my plan
    And thank God Always is not a 7 letter word and I’m sure it’s something you may have already heard
    Where I’m not the first, second or even the third
    But where I differ is I am a man of my word
    And I’m tired, can’t think of anything I want more than to lay my face in your lap, feel your hand on my head and remain like that through all eternity
    And I say that will all sincerity
    So don’t let these lessons harden your heart
    Cause there are two type of people: those who love life more than they fear it, those who fear life more than they love it and finding the right one for you is the best part

    And I want to marry you, and watch the fire in your eyes burn as your face begins to wrinkle. I want to see how you are 50 years from now, and know that I married the woman whose soul could never die. I want to hear you when you are angry and to laugh when you are happy, I want to know that I have someone who understands that life is tough, but it’s good when you have someone with you. I want to know that at the end of my life, I had someone that I could love and who loved me back.’

    So if you don’t know… I love you.
