"You've done it several times but every time turbulence hits and the ride gets scary, worst case scenarios race through your mind. You imagine the horrible moment of falling to your death. You imagine the faces of your loved ones, safe and sound in the warmth of home, sweet home."
Loving is like driving,
so you should know your traffic code,
an inexperienced driver
cause heartaches on the road,
breaking traffic lights,
skidding wrong corners,
den going too fast
and when the woman ready to cruise,
you hear him run outta gas.

"Loving is like a river, it's always constant, always flowing.
Being in love is like the ocean - wild and unknowing, deep and shallow, rocky and calm."
