    He Was More Then Just A Boyfriend

    Well, where to begin? His name was Clyde, and his life was nothing but a sad story. From the day he was born, nothing seemed to go right. He was a bastard child, and his mother died 2 days after his birth. He lived with his aunt and uncle for all of his life. At age 7, he...

    I never lost someone before.

    Especially someone in my family. Now my great grandma is gone. She was the sweetest person ever. I wish I knew her better and visited her more. Now she's gone. :(

    People come and go, just how it is.

    Just about time till you realise everyone is just a face in the crowd until you give them some significance in your life. Which makes you think who is next in line to make their way into your life and walk just right out.
