The Beautiful Things

Updated on November 7, 2014

The beautiful things

That you can't always see

They hide

Tucked away

A mystery

They are there

When you least expect them

To make you smile

To fall in love

With them

They shine and sparkle

Blur in the distance

Try hard to focus

You might catch a glimpse

They are the ones that surprise you

Lift you up

When you don't know where you are

They are the angels

That whisper in your ear

Twinkling in the sky

A thousand stars above

A thousand fireflies way up high

      I could see you sitting there, listening to something like the videos you added, and writing these imaginings: "Try hard to focus You might catch a glimpse They are the ones that surprise you Lift you up When you don't know where you are They are the angels That whisper in your ear." Beautifully done, and a soothing read accompanied by Spiegel im Spiegel.
