I Know I’ll Always Love You

I know that I’ll always love you

No matter the pain it causes,

No matter how much it destroys,

No matter how many tears come.

 

I know that I’ll always love you

Because I know that I am now

For the better in more ways

Than I’ll ever have time to count.

 

I know I’ll always love you

Though the street is not both ways

Because that is not what matters;

It’s the hope the feeling brings.

 

I know I’ll always love you

And of that I am grateful

For as long as I have hope,

I have a reason to live.

Can’t Forget

I don’t want to remember,

But I can’t forget

All those awful things you did

That ruined my life.

 

It pains me to remember,

But I can’t forget.

Panic attacks are common

When thoughts reappear.

 

It’s burned into my memory

So I can’t forget.

No matter how hard I try,

I can’t change the past.

 

I try not to remember,

But I can’t forget.

Never will I be at peace.

You have destroyed me.
