"When you're young, you can fly, but we trip on clouds 'cause we get too high" -The Band Perry (Song: Don't Let Me Be Lonely)
"Cause no matter what, you'll never be alone" -Lady Antebellum (Song: Compass)

You were the safeness
That ran through my veins
Begging me to hold on
And grab ahold of the reins


You were the comfort
Of a home, sweet home
Telling me that loneliness
Never means I'm truly alone


You were the security
That allowed me to sleep at night
Whispering in my dreams
And gently holding me tight


But when such happiness
Is deprived from my heart
I may trip and fall over love
And slowly tear myself apart


As extinguishing the happiness
And feeling of belonging somewhere
May be the hardest emotion
That my mind may share


For losing my other half
Causes me to be homeless
And have all the joys of life
Be forever gone and missed

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Oh, geez Luis. I love this. I can connect to this, so much. :) I love it. When I was readin this, I first thought that this could be a song.
