To believe is something I yearn for

To know without a doubt this thing exists.

But I look around and since the days of lore

It has slipped through our tight-clenched fists.

People say it all the time, casually

But do they really mean it inside?

They say it'll appear, as if magically

And that I have to wait for the right time.

A feeling so deep it cannot be destroyed

Seems so impossibly fake and unreal

Great effort would have to be employed

To show me why it is such a big deal.

Tell me, why should I believe,

In a feeling that time will relieve?
