Search

against the chaos that surrounds
i searched for your loving eyes
in the crowd.

i need to see you look at me saying, “it’s gonna be okay.” even if i know in my heart it will never be okay.

i lost my dreams in my search for peace.
i lost my faith in my search for hope.
i lost myself in my search for freedom.

and

i lost you in my search for tomorrow.

now, i’m left with nothing but your loving eyes that says “i told you, it’s gonna be okay.”

it’s time to give up searching for things beyond my control, for opportunities that may never come, for stories that may never happen, for chances that were never meant to take, and for tomorrows that will never come.

for today, unlike before, it’s genuinely gonna be okay. i believe in you, so i surrender. i have faith in you, so i submit.

“i’m sorry it took me so long,” i said.

“don’t be sorry,” you replied.

without a word, you took my hand and put a ring on my finger.
