What Matters by Markus Fleischmann


What matters the most to me

Is not the lavish things I see

It’s not what society expects of me

It isn’t my failures or faded dreams


What matters the most to me

Are all the little things

Like waking early to watch you sleep

Kissing you gently as you dream

Holding your hand as we cross the street

Seeing the smile on your face as you eat

Your little quirks

The way you sing


What matters the most to me

Is not money or fame

It’s not drama or stupid games

It’s the way you cry

Seeing a red balloon in the sky

The way you dance



Raindrops on your face

The dreams we chase

It’s crystals on the window pane

The songs the coyotes howl

Living in the now


What matters most to me

Is the warm and comfortable bed in which we sleep

The happy moments in memory we keep

A blueberry muffin in the morning

A cup of coffee or spiced tea

The goofiness you love about me

These are just a few things

That matter the most to me
