Not everything that you ask

Not everything that you want

Not everything you have belief in

Not everything you try your best at

Not everything you never give up on

Not everything you hope and wish for

Not everything you work for night and day

Turns out as you expect and pray


The Earth will still turn, the Sun still rise

Orchards will bud and come to flower

Weather delight and still surprise

Daily tides still hold great power

Stars still shed a heavenly light

I will still be forever blessed

By how you held me through that night

Before you smiled, kissed me, then left.
