A sadness in my soul

There’s a sadness in my soul
A feeling I can’t control
There’s a hurt in my heart
And I don’t know where to start
The thoughts in my head
Have become my daily dread
For now I know it’s true
I cannot be with you

All the pain that I have caused
Our lives being paused
The things that have been said
Keep me up all night in bed
I hoped we’d have forever
And I can’t believe it’s never
For the love I have for you
Is the deepest and most true

You gave me more than I can say  
I’m so sorry its gone this way
No one could ever know
The depth of our twin souls
The connection that we have
Leaves me longing for what I crave
The way you made me feel
It felt so ing real

For the first time in my life
My heart is broken and full of strife
I don’t know how I’ll get through
Every day without you
The love and joy we shared
Can never be compared
I can’t believe we’re over
You were always my dream lover

I will always think of you
In my dreams and daylight too
You’re the one who gave me reason
And now all I feel is beaten
I will remember every time
Your voice, your eyes, your smile
You’re the one who taught me so much
Our time together was such a rush

I hope you are OK
And that you remember every day
Our love became my home
And you will never be alone
For I will hold you in my heart
So we will never be apart
You are mine and I am yours
But this life must take its course

And even if it takes forever
There could never be another
For this love is deep and true
My heart will always beat for you
Our twin souls know the plan
We may never understand
Two souls that Are each other
Are destined to love no other

Penni Will


Those who love us most betray us the worst

Best Blessings

Weapons of mass construction

Africa is in my heartbeat 

A matrix for an issue

Christmas hugs warm smiles

A stampede rushing

Have you ever looked
