"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
-Wuthering Hights

I’ve waited for a lifetime,

yet I would wait a dozen more, 

if it could be your face that I see,

coming through my door.

Oh my love how I miss you,

how I wish that you would see,

that I’m never gonna leave you.

All I wish you to want,

is me.

Oh please go easy on my heart, 

it’s yours to take,

but please


tear it apart.

Please go easy on me love, 

I might seem strong,

but it is you I want to lean on.

You’re all I see at nighttime,

and the first thing on my mind.

Is it too wild to imagine that,

your thoughts are just like mine?

Do you still not realize that





the moment that you call?

I only wish you be the one,

to help me when I fall.


Oh please go easy on my heart.

It’s yours to take,

just don’t tear it apart.

Please go easy on me now 

for you are the only one,

who makes me feel, like





And oh, the way you look over my shoulder.

It's as though the rest of the world,

has lost its colour.

So little do you know, 

how it breaks my heart.

every time you tell me,

you love her.

A story of unrequited love, and of a girl, unable to move on. Remember, nothing lasts forever. Not love, nor even pain. Have hope, and stay strong in mind and in spirit.
