You had a mystery about you
And I saw it in your eyes
From the moment that I met you
You caught the crowd by surprise.
Maybe those eyes covered in sadness
And for that heart there was a plan
Someday, someone would catch your madness
And let yourself live free again.
Perhaps there was another passion
That was yet to be revealed
A hopeful voice, in usual fashion
Whispering “please just be still,
Stop running, searching, contemplating,
Breathe, and let you mind just soar,”
Because there was a human waiting,
One that you had not met before.
For a moment you remembered
How it was to really feel,
A child dancing in September
To cry, to know that it was real,
To imagine, to let go,
To live a life that’s being lived
You are not the thoughts you know
You are more than You’ve believed!
And one day you’ll see it too
How you light up every room
And those tears that you once knew
Won’t be coming back so soon.

Frightened we fell and started fights
Yarned to escape the city lights
Lived with one desire to hide
But our dreams couldn’t catch a ride
We rode onwards, just pretending
That this life was never-ending
It’s no surprise but caught in shock
The moments lived cannot be given back
One chance awaits just to be taken
Another moment lost; mistaken
It’s gone, can’t touch it anymore
Yet we curse courage for walking out the door
We mourn and listen; broken smiles
As courage stands behind the isles.
But if that chance maybe regained
We promise not to cause the pain
We never let it be forgotten
Take it next time before it’s rotten.
But what if this is the only time?
Too late to speak another line,
To touch a heart with the words we never said
And tomorrow may not come,
like the chance that never did.

These lines on my face will never fade
Yet, we just keep growing older
Our laughter speaks our age
Time doesn’t change
It doesn’t wait
Only we wait.

And I spent my whole life waiting
Waiting, waiting, contemplating
Whether you were the one worth waiting

I tried to think about
The life I couldn’t live without
I write these thoughts without a basis
My mind racing to different places
And way back when in the beginning
I wrote more words without a meaning
And rarely do they ever end
When all I do is just pretend
Those eyes I haven’t seen in many years
May bring a smile or the streaming of the tears
When we shall meet, face to face, hand to hand
The past is gone, the future’s planned
I thought about you every single day
Yet I cannot grasp the things i’d like to say
Fighting my struggles but fears hold me back
I’m searching for courage ’cause it’s what I lack
Pound down the feelings inside my head
Fearful as ever or maybe just dead
But memories keep me alive with you
I miss you so much ’cause it’s all I can do.
