    I think you get lost in life when you let yourself get carried by the current of life.. you feel you have no say in what happens to you, but I believe in cause and effect.. so be the cause of your own life path and not just the effect of what life throws at you. God gave us free...

    not the kind of lost

    where you make one wrong turn and you are in a different town. But the kind of state of mind that looking in the mirror makes you dizzy, and you feel that you are lost in a world that is no longer yours.

    One day you'll look at me

    and remember why you fell in love with me. We won't forget about the arguments but we'll put them behind us. You'll learn to love my imperfections as I love yours and you'll focus on the future and not compare me to the past. It's hard to shine when everything is grey.
