"today is a gift, that's why we call it the present".

They say it takes time,
To find who you are.
If you can’t decide,
Just follow your heart.
And when you get lost,
And can’t find your way,
Close your eyes,
And call my name.

I find hope,
In all the right places.
But I take my dreams,
And throw them behind me.
Until I can find,
The perfect melody,
Within these walls,
That seem to haunt me.
I look for perfection.
Behind the truth.
But perfection.
Is what I find in you.

I can’t lie.
I get lost in your eyes.
And the things I hear,
Take away my fear.
When I can’t,
Find where I am.
The visions of you,
Swirl all around me,
And suddenly I understand.

I could listen to the ocean.
All day.
But I would never find,
Things that would make me,
Want to stay.
All I love,
Is what I find in you.
And all I know,
Is that my wish has come true.

This sounds romantic, but I half wrote it about my mom and half of it I didn't even have a reason to write it, it just popped into my head.
