Stop to pick a daffodil

XXSit in a window in utter despair.
XXXXNowhere to go and nothing to see
XXXXXXWhere are they headed in life?
XXXXXXXXNo values are set, no goals are met,
XXXXXXXXWhat will they end up to be?
XXXXXXThey may aspire to be a twig,
XXXXOr a red kazoo.
XXWhatever they choose, it doesn't really matter
Because that, they will never be. 

The weak are weak
XXX because there is no one to make them strong

Just to see her face
Their eyes met
She looked away

And took her hand
Pulled her face up

Contaminates the soul's happiness.

So I stop for a moment, to take a look.

We lay on the beach
It was a cold night watching the stars
He grabbed his jacket and put it on my arm
I looked, he nodded his head
I grabbed his coat and put it on
Now the night could be perfect
Without the cold strong wind
