Ziv Zaifman - A Million Dreams Lyrics
Nothing is mine, nothing is yours only memories remain would lie to me because life is going because I can not fool what feels like my heart. You are my hearts, and hearts; is that goodbyes are sad perhaps fate did so that I will not say that it is a farewell but a farewell. When I want to write you never is getting started but I only think of you and write the first thing that makes me feel.
As I would like it wasn't, you know sometimes it is better to be far away and keep a good memory of the beautiful vivid moments, that closer and destroy something unforgettable. I prefer the taste to you my love and you will stay with the great moments that you will never forget. Is that not turned out as planned but also is in the attempt I am not, I wish you the best, perhaps the destination that we stole all the illusion.
I promise that it is time will blot out of my being to not hurt us more, all the signs that our love could be. Sign in or sign up and post using a HubPages Network account. Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites. They are the most beautiful and romantic poems I have seen.

It's almost four years of my relationship with her, we both love each other. I was so angry for her act, so I tried to love another girl so as to forget her. But my plan goes in vain; I can't forget my ex, I still love her.
