unconditional worth

i never held a candle
to the smile of her eyes
i never had the best words
for the times that flew by

she’d always give you what-for
and tell you how it is
but then always see that better side
–whatever life you chose to live

if i’m just the small reflection
like a moon will mirror the sun
wrapped in burdens of eternity
hopes are born — they’re never won

every night i spent in darkness
cool frustrations spent in flames
could never master subtlety
never play the game

yet i knew one thing was constant
as each spinning world went by
you see there are some angels
who were never meant to fly

she was just that kind of stubborn
with good reason to be wise …
so that is where i’d find myself
that is where i’d see forever

….in smiles of her eyes

  1. did an edit to make shorter, what can i say? it’s Monday. original version:

    i never held a candle
    to the smile of her eyes
    i never had the best words
    for the times that flew by

    i never was the sweet one
    hearts that mellow with age
    but i found every answer …
    and i built every cage

    and now i don’t know
    where i shall find my
    freedom
    wherever it reigns

    but i will go on and hold up
    what it means to question the pain

    and if you had ever known me
    then you would have known her grief
    because i sailed beyond the boundaries
    nothing ever out of reach

    who else would tell you
    that some angels never fly
    but i couldn’t hold a candle
    to her eyes … to the smile of her eyes

    you see she’d always give you what-for
    and tell you how it is
    but then always see that better side
    –whatever life you chose to live

    and if i’m just the small reflection
    like a moon will mirror the sun
    wrapped in burdens of eternity
    hopes are born — they’re never won

    and time is just a message
    words couldn’t find an open door
    spirits wound so gently
    but will heal at their core

    don’t waste moments on tamed fury
    don’t keep best hopes locked inside
    remember those who always loved you
    within the smiles of their eyes

    for every night i spent in darkness
    all frustrations spent in flames
    could never master subtlety
    never play the game

    yet i knew one thing was constant
    as each spinning world went by
    and that is where i’d find approval
    that is where i’d know forever

    ….within the smile of her eyes

    could never hold a candle to those deeper gifts of worth
    so please forgive my utter failures to assuage your deeper hurts
