Perfection [Perfect]

July 8th, 2005

Here, I wait in silence
No falling star can change my mind
Discovering my stubborn choices
(Cause me) to pass them off one at a time

The race we’re in to find a mate
(It’s) your better half, so don’t be late
As uncomplete you so now stand
A broken piece? Sure don’t feel like it

Pace yourself, don’t compromise
Perfection comes to those who try
Giving up gives you second best
But leaves you longing like the rest

I search for her, both near and far
But she hides herself to no avail
I know she’s out there, waiting to find me
Don’t give in, there’s lots of time to connect

And if I never find what I’m looking for
At least I can say, I never settled into a lie

It comes once a year
A time of joy
To count your blessings
And live one more

Faster now than ever before
Meaning fades to a number
Not old or young, but in between
No storied milestones yet to achieve

Just counting off the years gone by
Rememberance of times you’ve had
Twenty-three plus fifty more
Or maybe more with a bit of luck

How life does change and take its form
Daily tasks grow more and more

Death lingers amongst us all
From babies who know no mother
To children who lose grandfathers

And what is life but a beginning to an end?
Should we grieve for the time we may not have?
Or relish in what precious moments we do have?

To live fully is all that can be asked
Never knowing what tragedy may strike next
Taking its toll on the many emotions we express

We all know death
Our understanding makes us strong
But that same knowledge beckons weakness in fear
