Beautiful Things

To Yasmin The simple things excite you And you point them out for me To see the beautiful normal Beautiful normal things around me The moon was just the moon Until you said it was a friend To shine its light on dark nights To shine until evening’s end And here I am chasing history Chasing the time I feel I wasted Here you are telling me to pause That the only waste is what’s unappreciated So please bear with me a little longer I’m sure I’ll learn in time, as I do To embrace the here, the now, and everyday To see beauty in everything like you do #db
