Love Poems That Led Me to Face Tattoos and Marriage

Even tho

I tell you to be strong

And i act tuff

Act like i’m strong

You know that


I can be weak too


That i got


Like you.

That i miss

Just like you.

That i need

Just like you.

That i am




So be strong baby

Be tuff.

Act like you got this.

But don’t be afraid

To ever remember

That i miss you too.
