I Cry

I'm sitting on the porch
Wind blowing through my hair
The ducks are frolicking in the pond
But I just can't seem to care

Life goes on around me
I don't participate
I go through all the motions
But what I really do is wait

I dream about the day
That you'll come home to me
Nothing else is important
Why can't people see?

I don't want to go out
I don't want to have fun
I don't want to do a thing
Until all is said & done

They took you in the summer
Now fall is almost finished
Winter will be here very soon
And then the year will have diminished

You have no idea how much I cry
I never let you know
It's so hard out here without you
But I'm not allowed to let it show

I must pretend all is fine
Everyone thinks all's okay
But what I never ever tell them
Is that I cry for you every day

17 years I met someone very special I fell in love for the first time, but I made a mistake and let her go. I regretted making that mistake all these years. Throughout the years I was married 5 years had 2 kids, but that special someone from 17 years ago I never forgot about. Every now and then throughout the years we would talk to each other my heart can't stop loving her. It's hard but I'm willing to do what it takes to have her back in my life. I've come to realize that she is the only woman that can make me happy. I still believe until this day that she is my soulmate, but throughout the years she got married, divorced, kids and a bad relationship. But just recently we got back in contact with each other and my heart still deeply loves this woman.

I first spoke to him about two years ago. He is my first and only love, and is my high school sweetheart. He is very far away right now, and it kills me to know that I cannot even hold his hand. I miss my boyfriend so much; he tells me he loves me and wants to marry me. My parents won't let me speak to him any longer, because apparently he is destructive to my personality. I feel like the Juliette to his Romeo, and he doesn't realize how often I cry for him. I wish things were simple.

She was one of my best friends for what would have been a year, but now she just plain out hates me. I really want her to come back only because it hurts to much to love anybody else. I know she won't though because she's with someone else. Nobody cares about the guys anymore, I swear it...

I have known my husband for about 21 years and we have dealt with separation and reunion...he is now in prison and I miss him so much, knowing I can't hold him whenever I need to or feel his kiss or the look of love in his eyes. I am counting down the time till we are together. He is the better part of me! I love you Kurt with all my heart and soul!

I have been with this man as long as I can remember, but, he's not who I have been in love with all these years. I am still in love with my high school love. The bad part I have to see him everyday. We went to different schools after graduation. When I see him at work it is so hard to stay professional. He know how I feel and just recently he told me how he feels. Unfortunately, we are both married. We can only wonder what could have been. We have so much in common it is scary. Wishing it was simple.

I am in a relationship with my boyfriend of 8 years an he has went to jail he has been in jails for 4 months and 14 day I miss him deeply. We have that crazy strong love nothing can come between us not even this jail situation. But what it does is flair up my emotion and makes me sad because I can't see him when I want to or I can't call him when I need him.. But over all it's making us stronger and realizing reality in life because we were meant to be together.. And this I know because I haven't went nowhere yet and I ain't... God has a plan for us so I'm not worried.. God is great God.. I miss and Love My Willie Poo..

I am in love with a guy I am no longer with it's been over a year. I stopped talking to my friends about it they have too much going on in their life to listen to me cry over it. He texts me some times to see if I'm ok but I don't cry to him anymore. I know he has moved on. And it's my fault but I can't erase him from my heart. It hurts so much and I don't know anymore if it's just something I tell myself to get by or if it's true that he will come home one day. God I miss my superman...

It's been three going to four years. Though it's been years, you've never been out of my mind, my heart, my everything. Though you thought I've moved on, having boyfriends and so, but all was just cover. Nobody knows that all along, you were the only one in my heart. I remembered all our good and bad times together. But I doubt you would. It's been a good 1 year since I last saw you. I thought your appearance won't affect me anymore, but at that moment when you appeared, I then realized I was totally wrong. My mind went real blank and my heart was all messed up. But yet, I've to show you that I'm not by smiling to you and walked away as if we don't know each other. That was the part that hurt me the most. I've turned in to a heartless girl. I am afraid to get serious in relationship. You made me fall so hard and I still can't get up. If time could turn back, I'll choose the same path again, but I'll make sure our outcome isn't like now.. I miss you, still. As strong as before.

I miss my baby...so much I LOVE HIM SO MUCH"
