you'll understand.

my eyes burned bright, eclipsed by your vision and mind
first time in my life, one of many I'd find
moments days and weeks thereafter
lost in the beauty and the music of your laughter
stopped playing powerball for the first time in awhile
because I won the lottery everytime you smiled
every time you looked at me and everything you said
your soul was singing songs to mine
and drawing pictures in my head

everything made sense back then
the same way now that it doesn't
you try to convince and enroll
into what we both know that it wasn't
thats why when you try to justify
with words and logic to "clear" it
you simply don't see what it was for you and me
it was meant to be felt in the spirit

but I see where you're at and see what you want
and I won't continue to debate it
you might have forgot what it was and was not
don't expect me to disrespect what we created
one day you will be sitting in the sand
with a waving blue skirt on and the world in your hand
you'll close your eyes and feel the breeze on your face
and then that's when you'll understand.

Just lovely, the ups and the downs, the good and the sad, the resignation and acceptance.
