C e l e b r a t e F R E E D O M

When you love someone,
You’d give anything
to be with them...
Just to talk to them,
Just to hold them in your arms.

When you love someone,
You accept them unconditionally.
Accepting their faults
As a unique part of their being.

When you love someone,
You’d have the patience
to let them be,
Waiting for the right time,
for love to take it's course...

When you love someone,
You’ll be willing to wait
Wait a few seconds
Or an eternity.

When you love someone,
You tend to
take them for granted.
But the moment they’re gone,
You’re lost with out them.

When you love someone,
You show them that you do...
Give them priceless
moments of joy
And unforgettable memories.

When you love someone,
They’re always there...

Dead or alive,
They will always remain
within your heart.

Life is changed, not taken away.
To live in hearts we leave behind
is not to die.
