    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]We've come a long way
    A long way from that dreadful day
    The day I said we had one on the way
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]We've come a long way
    From the sleepless nights
    Through the tears I cried
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Yeah we've come a long way
    From the prayers I prayed
    Tears streaming down my face
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Think about it, we've come a long way
    From the thoughts in mind
    To do something I know wasn't right
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]We've come a long way
    From that first night we met
    And then I couldn't forget
    How you clung to my mind
    And I wanted you as mine
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Yes we've come a long way
    Didn't want it to start like this
    But now I lay and crave your kiss
    Thinking about the life we made
    Words can't describe the amaze
    I'm amazed by you and all you do
    The little things you say give my heart to you
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Baby we've come a long way
    From those nights of worry
    Those phone calls constantly
    Worrying that you would leave
    Worrying that I would be…
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Well I'll just say we've come a long way
    The one who said he's never loved
    The one I thought it'd hurt to love
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]You know we've come a long way
    From two free spirits going through life
    To two protectors of a beautiful life
    [/FONT][FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]We've come a long way
    And there's a long way to go
    We're unaware of the unknown
    Don't know where life will lead
    Know God wouldn't bring me so far to leave
    Despite the stress, the tears, and the screams
    all I know right now is it's you I need

    We've come a long way
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Yeah...[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]We've come a long way...[/FONT]

    Sometimes when we look back, we remember how it seemed next to impossible that things would work out. Yet somehow, they do. This piece reminded me how things can change for the best, thanks for this.

    Hi Lovely :wave:
    I always enjoy reading your love poem
    and this poem here is just like a song
    from the tears to the smiles
    you have brought life to your drop
    and I can feel nothing but happiness from it
    much love sis

    Peace & Love
