Beautiful Days

There’s no denying that we had beautiful days, But I can’t keep forcing puzzle pieces into my life that don’t want to fit. I’ve outgrown the need to understand the other side, I simply want to move on,With a promise that there will be more beautiful days waiting for us.©ZeinaA.G

Sometimes I wish some moments would last forever,Because that would mean I could hold onto happiness, peace,And laughter for a little longer. Also, Grief wouldn’t know my name,Because I wouldn’t have to let you go.©ZeinaA.G

Meant To Be
