I know that you love me,
More than i love myself,
That you gave this ring to me,
Leaving behind everything else.

I know how hard it is,
To tell me that its changed,
That everything i'm grasping for,
Is out of reach agian.

Today was the brightest day,
Becuase I made believe,
That you could actually understand,
All that you feel for me.

That it wouldnt overwhelm you,
And scare you deep inside,
Force emotions deep inside you,
That I never though you'de hide.

How can I blame you,
In the end I made it this way,
I let my dreams cloud my mind,
Forgetting painful yesterdays.

I let you pretend with me,
That you were ready for this,
Knowing that your scared,
Feeling it even in your kiss.

But I know that you love me,
More than I'll ever love myself,
So I'll stand by you just long enough,
To feel what you have felt.

This is beautifully expressed.  I especially love the last line:  "to feel what you have felt."  Too little too late, huh?

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Well Amber nice to see,

If I read you corectly... you need to let the past slip from thee. Yesterday can never find today unless it's reeled in again to haunt our ways. Each day is ever new don't bring a past back into view. A line that you once wrote speaks a very deep meaning to me, "I'd tell you, I Love You, but you'd probably break my heart" words so deep that another can see that there's some part of you that's searching through your past. Give today a chance, don't wake up tomarrow and find ten years has gone by and away and you hadn't had enough time to say..?

As always Amber your right from the heart,
Bless Bless... Dale



 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)

OK, Hun, I agree with Sis on this ...
give it time and let the love continue to grow.  The wonderful things in life are worth being patient for.
Love ya'
