I fell in love with life
But only when I met you
Only right there and then
So let’s be what we could have been
You could be most anything
But all I wanted was a friend
I suppose wanting everyone to be happy is an unrealistic wish. If I was the only one with problems, who wasn’t all that happy, that would be okay, it would be endurable. The kindness in people can get you through bad times, even when it seems like there is nothing good in the world. When I was crying last night and trying to pretend I wasn’t, what felt like hundreds of people, even those I’m not too close with, approached me and asked if I was alright, gave me a hug, gave me tea or a blanket if I was cold. People can be beautiful. It’s just that, while they are the nicest people I’ve met, they are far from happy, which is all I’d ask of them.
