You Changed My Life

A Very Special Love Quotes:

Pag ikaw ba nagmahal, dapat ka bang humingi ng kapalit na pagmamahal? Dapat mo bang antayin na mahalin ka pabalik?

Basta ang mahalaga di ka pa ubos. Andyan ka pa rin. Para pag dumating yung taong magmamahal sa yo, may maibabalik ka pa.

Because there’s so much pain in your heart, kaya hindi mo mararamdamang mahal kita.

Don’t make me feel I have to love you back.

Mapapagod ka lang umasa.Mapapagod ka lang maghintay Mapapagod ka lang umasang mamahalin ka.

Kahit minsan hindi ko naramdamang nakakapagod kang mahalin…Ngayon lang.
