I have faced…

I've faced misfortunes in life; encountered difficulties that I thought were too impossible to overcome. I've been bruised,

and my heart has been punched until it was black and blue. I was on the verge of dying before, yet I can't curse this world we are living in;

I can't wish it such bad luck, or even to become more miserable than it already has.

It has you, my dear—you are in here, and all I could think about is for you to be always safe.

This world had offered too many nights when I felt so exhausted and restless, and I never heard any apologies from it.

But when I met you, and I have known that you are in this lifetime with me, I've already forgiven it, even without hearing a single sorry.

I've been looking at this world as an unpleasant place to live in; but when you appeared after my sight, I have seen its beauty in you—by just merely existing.
