Things I didn't say
I never had a chance to tell youThat you became my reason to smileI simply hadn't the slightest ideaThat I'd have you for just a short whileThings happened unbeknownst to meAnd you were taken as quick as you cameBut since I got the chance to know youMy life will never be the sameSo, if somehow you can hear me nowPlease know these words are trueYou are truly someone specialAnd I was head over heels for youThe light in your eyes that sparkled for meWas the clue I'd been waiting forYou were the man of my dreamsAnd now my wounded heart remains soreIf I could be given just one more chance I will be sure to let you knowThat I am in so love with you And this time I'll never let you go©mandah88

I have not met you but I see you each night in my dreams. I know someday I will be with you, you're the only thing that can console my screams. Your beautiful face relieves me nightly from my awful nightmares. Just in the nick of time, you are always there. I wonder if this is some sort of special revelation... Sent to let me know that you're my real life salvation? I am still unaware the meaning of it all, I just know that you'll be there to catch me when I fall. You are the one who is sent to come and rescue me. And for that I owe you my love throughout all of eternity.©mandah88

My Eternal Love
I see your face in my dreamsI contemplate what this meansAre you the one that's made for me?Are you destined to be next to me?The feeling I get when I look into your eyesIs unlike any other, I get butterfliesDo you think that it's the universe's sign?To let me know you're meant to be mine?I need to know how you feelDo you believe all the signs are real?If you could, help me to understandIf you believe, please take my handI promise I will love you foreverAnd we can spend eternity together©mandah88

Without A Hell
I remember a time not too long agoWhen I was but a child ready to learn and growThe great wide world lay majestically before meA world full of wonder & opportunityThose days, now way back thenStill held hopeful for my fellow menIt was lifetimes ago or so it seemsBack when I still clung to hopes and dreamsNow I look at how much has changedI could never have foreseen a life so strangeOne that was doomed before the startA life that was tainted by the heart I had enough love to fill the seas But the world quickly brought me to my kneesIt left me mangled, badly hurt and scarredI tried to miss the pain, I tried so hardBut the weight of this world became far too heavyAnd my shattered heart was left so unsteadyMy only choice to protect it nowWas to numb it to all the pain somehowThe saddest part is what comes nextA reality that no one might have guessedMy broken heart left pained and frail Succumbed to the damage the world would impaleI grew bitter and my heart went coldThe world has left me weak and oldThe sun no longer shines in my skiesThe beauty of life ripped from my eyesNothing now can ever be the sameMy skies have darkened from all the rainI just miss the life I had so long agoBefore I knew the eternal fate of my soulBack when I still harbored my hopes and dreamsWhen I was still blinded to everythingMy infancy kept me seeing through a veilIn a world that existed without a hell©mandah88
Calculated actions bring into existence a fear unlike any otherWho will go next? Me, my son, or my mother?Evil men in the background brought this fear into the worldIt consumes the lives of many, indiscriminate of boy or of girlIt's purpose is simple, to further fatten the pockets of the wealthyWhile those who aren't rich fall sick and alarmingly unhealthyHow could such evil exist in so many human hearts?How could there be no remorse for all the lives your greed departs?Help me understand how your brain justifies such painYour cash won't go with you when you die, only your consequences remain©mandah88
It's funny how life works at times, ya know?When your a child you think you'll never grow oldYou never foresee any chance of failure or painBut as you grow older, that oblivousness don't remainThings begin happening and can take a turn for the worseFor some it may seem their victim of some curse Then there are those days that can get very lonelyYou should've taken your mother's advice you think, if only...It is times like these that make you question life's purposeIs there a reason for it all or is it just some kind of circusBut there is some advice I can give, friend to friendNever lose hope and don't wish for the endIn time things will get better if only you believeNothing is by accident, don't be so naiveThere is some bad times but there will also be goodNot everything we face will always be understoodJust look inside your heart and find the love withinI think that's the only way we can ever truly mendEach life that has been placed here on this planet earthHas been sent with a purpose that was destined from birthAnd just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not trueSomewhere, someone will be taught a lesson from youIn the times we feel lonely we must learn to keep goingAnd when tough times come, it's our opportunity for growing© Amanda.Humphrey©mandah88

Proof of the damage you inflicted upon meIs still left behind for the world to seeThe remnants left there for me to wearAre a permanent reminder of the despairIt started out as joy then grew to loveI truly believed you were the one I dreamed ofBut much too soon the love began to fadeAnd before long I found myself betrayedYou purposely left my heart in quite a messBut it never mattered nonethelessYou aren't sorry and my pain never matteredIt didn't bother you that my heart was shatteredYou view my scars as a sort of victory That have been etched quite deep to reveal our historyI don't understand it but that matters noneBecause the war is over and you have wonI'll take what's left and be on my wayThese scars on my heart will never go away©mandah88

To Attain Success
To sit around waiting for success to fall into your lapIs a choice that you'll one day refer to as a mishapSuccess is only attained by chasing your dreamsAnd knowing that nothing is as hard as it seemsNever let failure stop you in your tracksStrength is derived from these unfortunate setbacks#success #inspire #strength #courage #writcopoem But they're only meant to teach you, not beat youSo don't ever give up or let anything defeat you©mandah88
