Why today I saw a flower
Flower floating in my mind
Mind seeking truth
Truth I found in you.

Today I saw a beauty
Beauty in my chaos
Chaos in my world
World I found with you.

Smile I left behind
Behind on the floor
Floor in the room
Room enough for you.

Love is kind of crazy
Crazy enough to find
Find us together
Together me and you.

But no man knows how long he has, before reaching his waterfall."

I can't promise you, if you work hard, you will ultimately be a winner but I can promise you if you don't try or don't care you will be a failure."
