675 To Never Take For Granted [24 February 2005]

My heart cannot keep living this lonely life.
Why do I exist here?
I know now.
I didn’t before.
I was lost,
torn among the winds of fate.
This way and that was I tossed about.
Uncertainty tainting my every moment,
until I came to rest among the sakura,
clarity became mine.
Yet this loneliness is to teach me,
the appreciation of that which I long for.
Taken for granted it might have been,
had it been given to me.
