Love does not live there anymore

Do you remember when we were friends?

Thought we would be together until the end

You and me together and free

That’s how I thought we would always be

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

With each experience we grew stronger

Falling in love more and more with each other

I had eyes only for YOU, so I thought my love was true

Always thought that was how love was supposed to be

Me loving you and you loving me

……………………………………………………………………………………

As time went by we moved out of range

Moving in different directions, we were destined to change

Arguments became the new routine

Now cold as ice, you grew mean

…………………………………………………………………………………………

The waves were beating against our ship

I tried to save us but that was it

Enough is enough, it was time for me to get tough

It was time to jump ship and go ashore

Because love does not live there anymore.

Do you have the COURAGE

Do you have the courage?

To stand up for what you believe

With no fear of what others may perceive

…………………………………………………………

Do you have the courage?

To do what is right even if you must fight

For yourself or another

Do you need a minute to ponder?

……………………………………………………………

Do you have the courage?

To walk away from the one you love

Even if you have to push and shove

To escape the grief and disbelief

As you lie there in those empty sheets

……………………………………………………………

Do you have the courage?

To face your fears despite the tears

Go pass the hurt and find your worth

Ignore what they say dust off your shirt

……………………………………………………………..

Do you have the courage?

To look within and not treat courage like a sin

Don’t let your demons win

Stand up brave and tall; don’t be afraid to fall

Whatever you do never give up

Just keep reaching for the top.
