    “I love you,

    But for what I am

    When I am with you.

    I love you,

    Not only for what

    You have made of yourself,

    But for what

    You are making of me.

    I love you

    For the part of me

    That you bring out;

    I love you

    For putting your hand

    Into my heaped-up heart

    And passing over

    All the foolish, weak things

    That you can’t help

    Dimly seeing there,

    And for drawing out

    Into the light

    All the beautiful belongings

    That no one else had looked

    Quite far enough to find.

    I love you because you

    Are helping me to make

    Of the lumber of my life

    Not a tavern

    But a temple;

    Out of the works

    Of my every day

    Not a reproach

    But a song.

    I love you

    Because you have done

    More than any creed

    Could have done

    To make me good

    And more than any fate

    You have done it

    By being yourself.

    “You're my sweetheart to the max. I love you like Crispy Critters.” - Wesley Willis

    Love is the sweetest of dreams,

    & the worst of nightmares.

    Confidence comes not from always being right, but from not fearing to be wrong.

    Life lives, life dies.

    Life LAUGHS, life cries.

    Life gives UP and life tries,

    but life looks different

    through EVERYONE’S eyes

    If We Quit Voting, Will They All Go Away?

    Live your life and risk it all

    take some chances, take the fall

    take your time, no need to hurry

    have some fun, and never worry

    If you ever feel like you wanna die,

    think of all those things that make you smile

    && Live for those things. =)

    Dance like no one’s watching

    Love like you’ll never hurt,

    Sing like no one’s listening

    Live like it’s heaven on Earth.

    Time is precious

    and its slipping away

    so cherish every moment

    day after day

    You have to go through the worst to get to the best
