I need HELP fast.

I am desperate. I need help and who better to ask than my fellow bloggers and followers. I am in an "Unrequited Love" Valentine's Day ATC swap and it is due in two days. Thankfully I'm hosting, so mailing is not a problem.

I boxed myself into a corner by printing this image Patty Szymkowicz gave me permission to use from her freebie collection. My problem is, I have been racking my brain (what little is left) for an appropriate sentiment for it.

I was playing with the idea that when a person dies, especially one who is young, does her/his lover mourn for what could be, what really was, or what the memory left and time built on. I don't want to make it morbid, though.

If you come up with the sentiment I finally use for the project (REMEMBER, I only have TWO DAYS), I will send a small thank you gift your way. So please, please, help me out with the wording I need. I don't have a lot of room on this ATC and the photo (printed on photo paper) takes up most of the space. Again, if you can give me suggestions or a good sentiment, please post it. Thanks in advance.

"I'll wait for you" or "waiting for you" ?? It's a beautiful ATC and image...

This is gorgeous, I LOVE the background!
The first thought that came to mind was that age old bathroom ditty; "Here I sit brokenhearted..." which of course you can't use(!) but on a more appropriate note, how about, "You promised to teach me to fly..."

When I looked at the picture, the first word that came to mind was "waiting........" then "heaven sent"

Don't know if you've chosen yet, but "Forever & Always" comes to mind. Hugs, Terri xoxo

In my mind came up the simple: Why?

"love remains" or "love endures"

How about "We'll meet again"?

Melissa said...

No, wait...how about: Sure, now you bring flowers!

In love there is hope

Bear with me, Elizabeth, the first is a little sacrastic and the ones previously submitted are so fantastic. First thing I thought of is "Karma Sucks" - I know.... or "You said you'd be back" or "Rememberance" or "Lost in Memories" "Say it isn't so"

This is how I felt when I first looked at the photo ...Always In My Heart. Not really good at this Elizabeth. :)
