    You Can Never Know..

    I mean it's impossible to know what the future brings, so there is the possibility that nobody ever truly loves me. But, on the other hand, chances are at least as high, not to be never truly loved.

    Why Can't She Just Love Me?

    Why can't she see how much I love her and need her? I've asked that question in my head a million times over our 21 years of marriage. Why can't she just open up and allow our souls to meld together and realize that two soul-mates together is much stronger that two souls apart? I...
