I used to love
I used to dream
I used to hope

But I forgot

I need something
(Someone)
To remind me of these beautiful things
For a shard of happiness

So I can love again
Dream again
Hope again...

Live again
Just a little something I came up with. Enjoy.

Love the way you wrote this. That (someone) line really spoke to me for some reason. Great work!

Meant to comment earlier, but commenting now

This is really amazing ;a; And I completely understand the feelings in it. Especially about being lost and needing someone to help you, essentially, find yourself. Granted, it's true that having someone doesn't make everything better- not at all. But it makes things easier and if you forget how to live, they can remind you. <3

I guess being alone makes one understand the true meaning of friendship. It can help a lot.

You can't expect another person to make all of your hopes and dreams come true. You yourself have to be in charge of all that. A lover isn't a jackpot or a fairy godmother.

I know it takes more than a lover to fix all my problems. But it would help :)

I wouldn't say it is very imaginative, not very original either, but rather bland and dry. It's a common theme, and although it isn't exactly badly executed, I feel that it just doesn't have much feeling to it - no sting.

It was just something quick. Like, written in a minute or so. I didn't expect it to become this popular.

I was able to feel this without even realizing, I was reminded of the good things without even realizing it was happening. It was surprising when I actually stopped and saw I had been reminded of the good things again, it actually became scary.
espero que um dia também sejas recordado disso sem te aperceberes, é uma boa sensação ainda que seja de facto um bocadinho assustadora

comecei em ingles porque vi isto na pagina inicial e abri, e entretanto antes de acabar abri a tua página e vi que eras portugues, daí ter ficado metade metade

Estou a ver. É bom poder falar com alguém por aqui sem ser em inglês de vez em quando.
