There are things that I've always wanted to say to you and I wish I had said them to you. I know you can't be here with us as you're on your long journey away. There are some things I want to say.
Christmas will be different for all of us this year but there is still some part of you in me. You loved Christmas, so do I. It's the time of year you really shine. I like to get up my Xmas decorations early every year, I wrote a poem for you and it was like you really wrote it.
I cannot find the words to say how much we all miss having in our lives.
However I know wherever you are, you're making everyone's Christmas merry so this is a way my way of saying 'Merry Christmas to you'.
Although I don't have a gift to give you in person, you have given me a gift which will stay with me forever which was your heart. I'll love you forever and I hope I'll achieve your dream for me as you always said someday I'll be a writer.
Love you forever.
Love Katie xxxxx.
If I could make a wish
I'd wish for you
For you to be yourself
Like me and no one else
Keep smiling and making me laugh
I want no one else at all
Many are cute
Many are fine
But I've never met anyone who is that and so much more
Nice, funny, sweet, caring, and has a great smile
What to do with a guy like you?
I can think of a few things to do
The most important thing I would do is
Be with you
in the dark,
not being able to talk,
my heart is breaking,
I cannot think.
Sitting here all alone,
making myself bleed.
Taking that knife,
cutting my wrists,
Trying to take the pain.
Is nothing worth living,
without you around.
Your putting a hole in my heart.
I can't bear the pain,
It's getting too bad.
I'm starting to bleed,
worse then I already have.
I really want it to stop,
but it just keeps pouring out.
It's getting really dark,
I think I'm almost gone.
Please come back,
help my survive.
I want to live,
but only with you by my side.
I LOVE YOU!!
My heart plays for uuuuu.
It plays for uuuuuuu.
Here is my response. The reason you never cross my mind is because you're always on my mind.
The reason why I don't like you is because I love you.
The reason I don't want you is because I need you.
The reason I wouldn't cry if you left is because I would die if you left.
The reason I wouldn't live for you is because I would die for you.
The reason why I'm not willing to do anything for you is because I would do everything for you.
The reason that I'm alive and the reason that my life is the way it is , is because your in it!
The reason that I love you is because your always there for me , you're my one and only and I LOVE YOU!
Our annual prom is coming up and I was nervous because everyone had a date, but me. I felt so ugly and unwanted. There's the guy everyone wants to date, and I knew that somehow he'd work his way into asking his wonderful crush to the prom. Turns out that he didn't ask her. I was selling the dance tickets when our leadership officer came up to me and said,"Hey, I got this today. It's a ticket, someone bought it for you." I was shocked, and took the ticket. One the back it had writing on it, it said,
"If the world were to end tonight,
I would want to be seen dancing in the light,
with my mysterious date who glowed to,
and I would wish that that date would be you!
Dear, cc please go with me, I really want you to be my date and girlfriend in the end! Love so much,
Of course I accepted it, and I tell ya 'HC' was the one guy all the girls fantasize about and he took ME to the dance, I was so shocked. The best part is that we are still going strong to this day!
When I see you I get amazed but when I see your friend I get even more happy because I love her so leave me alone.
haha,, ahm,,,, i love you more and more each day.
U just dont know, but I love u too.
I'm just scared to let u know.
Good luck to our destiny, and I hope our paths might cross in the future!
Dying 2 Kiss u again!
Baby when I first hugged you
it felt like I was sticking 2 u like glue
I wouldn't have let you go.
but I didn't want 2 get caught huggin ya so..
I will get my chances again
but 4 now we gotta think when
I know it will happen soon,
just wait 4 the time and I'll hug you.
You want to say you love him
but you're afraid of what may start
or what may not start,
that could break your heart.
You see the the boy you like,
and stare into his eyes.
You want to say hello,
and never say good-bye.
You think that he'll shoot you down
like a bird in the sky
But what could happen if you never try?
You look at him and think of the words to say.
But those words in your heart they lay
He may say no
Love is just like a game show
There are right answers and there are wrong,
The words go round like the notes of a song.
You write a poem to tell him all the words in your mind,
For you hope it is true love that you find.
So you sin and write this poem and want to give it to him,
For him you would go out on a limb.
You walk up to him and give him the letter and hipe the outcome is okay,
Even if he says no it is in your heart he will stay.
I love you more than a very large cookie and believe me that is love!!!
Love is not by words but by the feelings inside and you can't feel what I feel about you. You don't know how much you mean to me, and I can't tell you that I love you cause I don't know if you love me too !!!
" My Love"
Love is a heartache
it hurts real bad
it makes me sad
I cry every nite
Love isn't what your friends or family think
it is what you think
Love isn't anyone's problem
but the people who is in love
Me and You.........
For the One I Love
In you, I've found the love of my life and the closest, truest friend of my heart.
To be without you is a mistake. I love you like a fat kid loves cake. You're the apple of my eye. I see you everywhere, even in the sky. Christmas is not going to be the same. I won't have any fun playing my new xbox game.
Until I meant you,
there was no sun in my sky,
no candle in my heart,
no twinkle in my eye.
Until I meant you,
the days dragged on,
and time stood still.
Now that you are in my life,
I feel loved more than ever,
I don't think that I have ever felt this way with anyone before,
And this is my first very sweet taste of
I Love you Zavy, Love, Zavy's Baby
Please put my recent letter in the love letters section.
You have got to understand that Zavy is the sun in my sky and I love him soooo much.
Love, Zavy's Baby
You probably won't get to read this, but I think you're awesome! Lots of love,
Maddison Angela Loren Beth Farmer.
That day you said you wanted to be with me
Was one of the best and worst days of my life that I Would ever see
Because life would change in every way
But I knew you wouldn't wait at bay
Like waves of water I knew you would go
My parents were caring
But all I wanted was to flow
They wanted to keep me safe and hide
I wish they didn't so deeply care
But I'm glad they did because life is hard to bare
I loved and cared for you more than any guy I've ever known
But now you?'e gone and my chances are blown
I'm really hurt, down and blue
Because from the moment we met
You were too good to be true
I'm trying to recover and get my life under control
But the sad things in life just continue to roll
I'll never forget the way I felt
Even though that part of me is starting to melt
Just know that you will always have a space
In this broken down heart that
That will be hard to replace
Our love shines as shinny as the sun!
***Roses are Red, Your eyes are blue, and you know what, I love you!
When I stare at your smile, I think of your laugh!
When I love you, I love myself!
Say yes and I will be the happiest man alive!
From your lover
My love burns for you like the crackling fire that I lay next to,
keeping me warm when I feel so cold.
Telling me its all right and not to worry.
I am scared to touch but not scared to talk to you.
I love you today and tomorrow and the next and the next.
I will love you forever please love me back...
The following letter was sent to me from my boyfriend of four years, Dominic...
"Phoebe, I love you just as you are,
So please promise me this one thing,
Don't change anything, anything at all,
Just be you, don't be afraid,
Cos I want,
Cos I need,
Cos I love,
The real Phoebe,
Phoebe, I love you just as you are."
I am happy to say, me and Dom are now engaged for 2008!
Why do I feel this way?
You give me everything,
but the one thing I want from you is to care.
I want us to be together from ever.
I feel like you want us to be together but you don't show it.
Why is that?
I need you in my life,
my life wont be right with out you.
I love you since the first time I saw you and still love you. I haven't kept my eyes off of you. You are my heart and soul. We are destined for each other. You will always be in my heart no matter what and forever.
I really want to get back together with you. But how am I supposed to know if you want the same thing? I know things ended badly before, but I really want to fix it. More than anything.
How about we go to the park on Wednesday? Take Allie with you, and she can meet Brownie. We will have so much fun! I hope to see you soon. Lots and lots of love,
Why oh why does he care about me?
Why oh why does he like me?
Why oh why does he think about me?
Why oh why I'm in his dreams?
Why oh why does he think of me today?
Why oh why does he think of me tomorrow?
Why oh why does he say I'm pretty?
Why oh why does he think I'm pretty?
Why oh why is this like a fairytale?
Its hard enough to loose a best friend, but it's even harder to loose you; to loose the boy i love, to loose 6 years of my life. I can't think of anything I can do without thinking of you. When you're mad at me and won't talk to me, I cry and then I get sick . I'm more sick of having to wait for you, and the fact that you like my best friend and not me. It's sickening knowing that the one you love, loves someone else!
I've loved you since the first time I saw you and still do. My love burns for you. You are my heart and soul. We are destined for each other. You are the only person I love like this. I really wish you could know how I feel about you. I hope you feel the same way about me.I can't ever keep my eyes off of you.You are as beautiful as the clouds are in the sky on a sunny day.You will always be in my heart forever, even if we are not together.
Your True Love
There have been some things I've wanted to tell you.
One of them is that I love you, and I wish that you were here.
To Dear Blake,
My love grows for you each and every day.
My friends swear that when i sleep over they here me call your name. Oh, how much I wish you were mine. I love you, Blake. I wish you were mine.
You Secret Admirer
How my love grows for you.
Oh, my most treasured posession for the future my adorable BB will do anything for me.
I would not know love without him.
I love you Steven. I wish you'd understand that I will love you forever, and I will never let you go. Even if you found a new love, I would still love you forever! I love you!
I miss you so much on the weekends,
and I hope you feel the same.
I love you like mad!
I need to tell you how I feel, but I can't. Through the past, I've told people my feelings for them, and I've always been rejected. Now I've learned. You seem different from all the rest, but how do I know that for sure. You understand me like no other. When I'm feeling down, I know I can always talk to you. I tell you everything. We've exchanged our biggest secrets to each other. I trust you, but why can't I tell you this one thing? I'm afraid to lose this friendship with you. But I want so much more than that. Sometimes, it seems like you don't even want to talk to me. It hurts me really badly. Sometimes i feel so useless. I guess I've come to realize that I'd rather be your friend, than nothing to you.
I was just writing to tell you how much I love you and want to be with you in the future. Always remember that I love you so much with all my heart and I promise that!
I don't want to be me
I've got more important things to do then live my life,
I've got more important things to do then fight for the right to be myself,
I've got more impotent things to do then impress you,
I am not just like any other kid but like every other kid!
I am no one,
I am nothing,
I am me,
And he is he and she is she
But this me is not me
This me is someone else!
Someone I don't like,
Some smiley face and a heart weak as paper!
I am confused to see someone so absurd!
Someone so peaty,
Someone who feels,
Like she is someone
When she isn't!
I hate this me
Because this me isn't me and isn't the person I should nor want to be!
This me is uglier than the real me
Because this me is a sail out!
I don't want to be like this...
I don't want to be a look-a-like wan-a-bee!
I want to be me!
To Sadie and Emma
We just want to say christmas without you will be painful and we care about you loads. We wish we could see you one last time be for we head back home to the USA. Now we have to wait until April to see you to again. With loads of hugs and kisses your boys.
Dear courtney, I don't know what I'll do without you this christmas, but since you said you don't want anything but me for christmas I decided to tie a bow around me and I'll be your gift.
My boyfriend Mike and I have not been going out for too long. Today, he got me a gift. It was a pen that looked like a fake lipstick tube and a bracelet. I love him so much, and he loves me. He always makes me smile, and I make him smile too. We are so happy together, now and forever. I know this can't be that perfect, but it is. It just seems unrealistic. We used to hate each other, but we are now the opposite. We love each other.
I like a boy named Aaron, but I know he doesn't like me. He's got a girlfriend, but he shows me little signs He likes to get close to me. He told me so. He likes me, even though he won't tell me.
What will it take for you to notice me?
All I asked for is to be with you.
I guess some people don't change.
So, I will take a deep breath and count to ten.
Maybe I'll wake up from this mess.
This mess has gotten too far for me to handle.
I wish I could run away and rewind time, and I wish I never knew you.
Then maybe my heart wouldn't hurt so bad.
Love is fine when I'm with you, but love isn't when we're not together. When I see you in the streets, my mind goes clear because I love you.
Twice, now, the opportunity has arisen, and twice I've only had the guts to kiss you on the cheek and say goodbye. I have this feeling deep inside me that if I were to press my lips to yours, you wouldn't pull away. I know you will never initiate it, so it is up to me, but I can't because I am too scared of rejection. I guess I would rather not know than risk losing you all together. Sometimes it is so hard to resist what I feel for you, and sometimes I come very close to going just that little bit further, like last night. We were all dancing, as you know, and I felt like it was just you and me. Then, I turned to you and we hugged and I kissed you on the cheek. I wish I'd had the guts to kiss your lips. I think if I had, the connection would have been immense. Basically, what I'm trying to say, is that I love you so much. I just want you to know, but I also know you're not going to read this. So, this is just a way for me to get it out, not bottle it up inside me because that makes it harder. I already feel a bit better for writing this, even more so as I press the submit button now. I love you S.
Hey whats up? Nothing much here, just hanging out and thinking about you. I want to say a few things.
I'm sorry about cheating on you, and I'm sorry about everything I've done to you. I want to know something. Does she love you like I love you? Im so sorry about what I've done. Please take me back, I'm so sorry about everything. Please think about it and call me or write me a letter. Well I have to go now, so see ya later.
Write back or love your later.
Call me. Veronica
I know the time has come for us to say good bye, but I loved everything about you. Why did you have to say good-bye? I'm left here, 9 months pregnant, with no where to go but to the man upstairs. That's how it was told. You may be locked up, but thats okay, because its not made to last. You'll be back someday. I'm going to hold you down like a real woman should. So when you start to question me, think before you could that I am the real woman that will be understood.I love you Charles. December 20,2006 @ 3:41pm
I love you so much that words can't describe it. I don't deserve you. I hope that your holidays are filled with the happiness and the joy that you so deserve. I love you, and I hope that this relationship will last for me. I have never lasted this long with a guy, ever. That means something. You are the most important guy in my life, and I just want you to know that I love you so much that my heart aches just thinking of all the love that I give off. Even when you just walk into the room my heart races. It is chemestry between us. I have never felt the trust that you and I have, or the love that we share. I just want you to know that I love you and I always will. Every night I go to sleep lying awake hoping that you feel the same way about me. Do you? I can only hope, because I don't want you to annoy you by asking every question. Sometimes you just have to assume. Well, I adore you.
Love, your baby
Dear Jacob, even though we are just friends, I would like you to know how I feel, but I don't know how to tell you. I really like you, but you have never shown any interest in me. I want you to know; you're the nicest and sweetest boy alive (not to metion cute), and my faveorite class in school is ninth period b-day studyhall, only because you're in it! I hope that someday I will be able to tell you how I feel, but I'm in no rush because you don't seem to like girls like me (girls who have the tom-boy image). I'm working on that, so you might find out my feelings, but maybe you won't, you never know!
I love you. I always did. My heart sings when you look at me in the hall.
I know you have another boyfriend already, but ever since we broke up I can't stop thinking about
You are the only one I always think about.
You are the only one I want .
I love you,
I saw you the other day at the barn with your little sister.
I could not take my eyes of you.
You stole my heart the day I met you.
I wanted to have you but your sister said you were already taken.
I think you are more than just a middle school crush, you are my first true love!
I will love you forever.
I will hold you always, as long as I'm living.
My baby you'll be the one for me.
I'm so sorry for whatever I did wrong.
I can see that you are mad at me, but can you please just tell me what you are mad for?
I miss you and constantly think about you.
I will give up everything for you.
I'm so depressed right now because of you.
I think I love you, and I just want you to be happy with me.
If you were just my friend and nothing more, you don't know how happy that alone would make me.
I love you, and I need you, and I can't stop thinking of you.
Talk to me.
You are so hot!
Whenever I see you, my heart falls out of my chest and you stomp on it.
I feel like a little penguin drowing in the sea of love.
I still love you but your mother is hotter than you.
No JUST KIDDING!!!!
When you are not around, you are wtill on my mind.
I think of you all the time.
You have a nickname behind your back.
You are the opposite of hell.
You are a cutie and that is for sure.
You are my one true love!
I have my eye on you.
Baby my heartburns for you!
Your secret admirer.
My eyes are brown like the dirt on the ground.
My lips are pink like everyone else around.
My friends are your friends.
You and me could form a we!
Your Secret Admirer
The reason that I love you is because you always make me laugh, and you make me fell like I could tell you all my secrets.
I love so much, and I am glad you are my boyfriend!
Dear mystery girl,
I love you, and I wish you were here.
You are my only true love and I want to be with you forever.
I want to marry you.
Not just for your lovely appearance, but for your personality and the way you are.
That is why I love you.
If you read this, I just want to say from the moment you started flirting with me, I have been fell in love with you.
You are cute, and I like you.
I remember that night
When stars were crying
The night we ended our love
Once you said you loved me
But it became a fable
When you laid out the truth
Everything was on the table
You have no sympathy
For this fragile heart of mine
I wish I could take my life back
I just want to rewind
Now you've moved on
I am left all alone
I still hear our laughs echo in my home
But now everything is over
I will try to move on
Sometimes I cry from dusk untill dawn
Even though you will never read this poem
I put my feelings for you up
Just so you know one of us still remembers
When I look into your eyes I melt.
The only thing matters is that we both know what we feel is real.
I like you.
I have been with different kinds of girls.
I have seen them all.
But there is none of them like you.
I only want you baby.
This is for you.
Stay here with me, because when I find out that you do not love me, my heart breaks. I love you, but when you tell me your true feelings, my heart melts away. I do not understand why when I see you, my heart flips and I begin to hear my heart beating like a drum. You are the reason the world revolves. You are the reason the sun comes out. You are the reason for my living, so do not forget me. You gave me many things, my love for you being one of them. This little letter is just a small part of my heart being sent out to you.
Your Secret Admirer
We met at camp. I had a crush on you! You did not know that. You went off to the Navy. I thought I would forget about having a crush on you but I did not. I love you!!!
I love you,
Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue,
Everyone knows that I love you.
You took my breath away.
I hope you are here to stay.
The love of my life, you are my baby.
But there is just one problem between you and me.
Are you cheating?
I thought you loved me.
Could this be true?
How could you let another girl come between me and you?
What should I do?
Should I talk to you,
Or just let it slide?
It seems to me that I can't make up my mind.
Our relationship has just started, is it coming to an end?
Im really scared to even try to begin.
So why don't you let me know
When will we begin or has this relationship come to an end?
I'm kind of shy, so this is hard to say, but I love you! I thought you probably wanted to know who sent you that secret note and red rose. Well now you know, it was me!
You know what love is?
It's stupid. It's wanting, gnawing, burning wanting, wanting that makes you want and want until you can't want anymore, and usually it's things, and people, you can't have.
It's wanting you to be there forever, but knowing that, any day now, I might wake up and you won't be there anymore. It's wanting to know that you love me too. It's knowing that I may never see you again, and being okay with that fact -- because I had one year, and a half, and I know what it's like to be happy.
It's happy, something small and insignificant that you don't realize until you can't have it anymore.
It's something I won't see again for a very, very long time.
And this is the part where I say 'I love you', and it isn't enough.
