Oscillating Flashes

We smile in the face of the inevitably unknown,  
Enjoying drinks we raise our glasses
in celebration of the simple things,  
Things that give life a bright but light  
undertone;  
In slowly oscillating blurred to focused flashes of a life that isn't ours;  
A single petal of a delicate daisy entwined with strands of light brown hair, the smell of soft floral fumes;
Oscillating blurred to focused flashes  
to see the wrinkles in her smile, the feel of cool wind on skin;  

A new breath in  
ancient altitudes

Oscillation resembling a glow  
of blurred brilliant hues afar,  
dainty little hands receive a gift,  
perfectly wrapped presented with love;  
Oscillating blurred to focused flashes  
to see the endearing joy in his eyes  
stopped in time for just... one moment;  

Encapsulating love  
in ancient persons  

I'm brought back to our raised glasses  
smiling at your fiercly loving eyes,  
In the face of the inevitably unknown  
warmth consumes me;  
what's to come doesn't matter  
because I'm with you

I honestly think it's best to read this while listening to a song, to capture its sentiment. Maybe that's just bad poetry, idk.
