"If its beautiful where you go then take in every moment. Every capillary of every petal and leaf. Every undulation of every ancient rock. Every gasp of laughter of anyone you love. Look to all of these things. It is the important stuff." -Paul

Every single person I know.

Has looked up at the sky.

And seen something different.

Look up at the sky and tell me I'm wrong.

The artist for example looks up he's like.

hey, I wanna paint that

grabs some paper and some paints and he's gone,

the beach babes and the surfer guys.

for example look up and they're like.

hey, beach time.

gonna go get my tan on.

look at the sun.

and they're gone.

the pale quiet kids,

that love the dark,

look out at the sky,

and they're like,


it's finally dusk,

bye mom.

and they're gone.

But do you look up at the sky.

wondering if there's a god up there

if your best friend who died last year is watching you

if there even really IS a heaven.


if that shooting star up there really grants wishes because

one time,

you wished on one.

and it came true,

but hey.

it wasn't even a good wish anyway.

...because you could have wished for something cool, like a mini fridge, or a pony. hell, could have been REAL clever, wished for three more wishes. maybe gone all miss America and wished for, world peace, something crazy like that. naw, but I'll never know. cause you get one wish and it's gone, it's wasted. wasted like you were that first time, like the last time... wasted like every second I kept that secret hidden every... but no.. I used up my wish and now times wasted and. you're gone. because no one ever really knew what I got. Cause you tell your wish, and it's gone. You never really know what you've got. until it's gone. Some day. You're gonna look up at that very same sky. And wonder. Just like me.

but you'll never know


you don't really know

what you've got

until it's gone.

and some day.

you're gonna look up at that sky.

and wonder just like me.

if there's really a God up there.

and if your grandma..

or your dog..

or your best friend..

is looking down at you.

Every single person I know.

Who looks up at the sky

Sees something different.

But some day.

You'll wonder.

life had i loved the more
had it but passed away
as quietly as the day
ebbs from the darkening star.
