True Love Is Blind

When love strays, no one knows why it turns
you're caught off guard, with a heart that burns
left with a dry mouth, and a mind that's numb
with no strength to cry out, your pain is mum

Yesterday you felt loved, he was the only thing on your mind
then, you were so sure he was your godsend, such a rare find
yet today you look for answers, answers for the grief you bare
making a vow to yourself, never again to fall in love, you swear

As time passes memories fade, wounds have begun to mend
going out with your friends, once again looking for a boyfriend
this endless cycle continues, maybe there will not be an end
adolescent years with many challenges, never to comprehend 

There comes a point in your youth, when happiness you will finally seek
a happiness you now understand, not surrounded by the false mystique 
love will not be found by searching for it, it's something that must find you
finally coming to realize, your eyes will only mislead you to a love untrue

Coming to this truth, you acknowledge there is something you need
if you want to find true happiness, and if you really want to succeed
here is the one truth for you to know, the power for this happiness is from above
G-d alone weaves the circumstances, joining two beings with happiness and love

Don't look for consolation to life's disappointments in an illusionary, temporary escape
and do not become content, in the unsafe harbour of your mind's imaginary landscape
joy and happiness and true love in your life, G-d will most certainly cause you to find 
perhaps just maybe then you'll understand, why true love must necessarily be blind
