Pearl

 

(Matthew 13:45)

 

Lately, I have begun to realize

all I truly need is always right there.

I only see when I open my eyes

how much I do not need to compromise.

I like to conclude that life is not fair.

Lately, I have begun to realize

it’s just my defense, the way I disguise

what I, perhaps, attract so unaware.

I only see when I open my eyes

how I deceive myself by telling lies.

Afraid I’m destined to play solitaire,

lately I have begun to realize,

falling in love can take you by surprise

when you find the one with whom you can share.

I only see when I open my eyes

how close love could be if I’d recognize

it could happen anytime, anywhere.

Lately I have begun to realize,

I only see when I open my eyes.
