Every day I realize More and more what I have It isn’t my belongings, dusty on shelves It isn’t the things I’ve accomplished Or even the things I’ve mastered But instead, It’s the people And the experiences The beauty of life itself These are the things that matter The things that are worth loving The things I want to fight for I hope I never lose sight Of the true treasures of life
Thinking of you today and I ask myself this… How can anyone be lonely when they have a million friends? But I suppose it’s more than that isn’t it? It’s the foundation the connectedness the secret loyalties among confidences. All these things matter in order to gauge the true value of a friend. And sadly without the right combination our state of loneliness is never very far away.
You seem different lately Resolved Like you won’t dare budge Because whatever it is That thing you’ve decided You’re now instead Resolute That’s exactly what you are And it’s interesting Because I thought you were doing Just fine You know – the way you were before Funny thing is You’d never admit You’ve changed That you’re anything different Than what you’ve always been But I see through All that nonsensical jibber jabber And you have changed I know it I see it Because I know you So believe it Or not Because I know you like to believe What you believe You seem different lately And you are
Dismal days Are all the craze Everyone’s living In a haze Could this be Just a phase Or are we stuck In a repeating maze Look at the way People gaze So many lost In a doleful daze Will we ever find Those hopeful rays Or stay prisoners of Depressive waves Can we all give Encouraging praise Or will morosity Be what stays Everyone has a choice To change their ways Kindness has always Been what pays Can you share Your love full blaze There really isn’t time For delays
It’s been quite a long time Since I last held you And now you just don’t feel the same You’re like a long lost friend The kind I used to know so well The sort I’d spend every day with Who I’d laugh and cry with The kind I’d stay up all night with Who’d listen and love me for me Like the friend who was always there No matter time or day The sort who cared about everything Regardless of its true importance But now things are different And you feel so unfamiliar Our connection has sadly faded And the magic that was once inside you Seems to have lost its fiery spark You used to be so mesmerizing I could stare at you all day long Your life-giving enchantments saved me And I wonder why you had to change You used to write the loveliest things But like a long lost friend Who was once as close as a brother You just aren’t the same as before I’m afraid the spell has been broken And the essence of you is surely gone
