406 Where Are You? [16 April 2001]

where are you
love of my life?
the one who will hold me
‘til the day I die
and perhaps beyond that
I can’t find you
in this murky haze
that surrounds my life
what will I do
‘til I find you
or you discover me?
I guess I shall survive
it is all I can do
I suppose
though at night
I can’t sleep
wondering about
where you are
the life you lead now
when I will finally
see into those eyes
I will love so much. . .
loneliness has always
been apart of my life
I await the day
when that will end
and you will always be there
for me to turn to
I guess I have to wait
longer that I thought
it seems I’m supposed
to be pure for you alone
though I wouldn’t mind
a casual interlude
with someone
whoever holds the cards of destiny
knows this fact
and is making damn sure
you are the first
I awake each day
hoping that it is the day
when I will meet your eyes
across a crowded room
or bump into you
my heart, mind, body and soul together
call out for you
needing and desiring your closeness
to hold you at night
to be held
wrapped in your arms
feeling your strength
knowing you as I will no other
so I guess
‘til the day you actually do
come into my life
I will hold my head high
my heart open
half my soul missing
yearning for you
I will settle for no one else
except for you
Whoever you may be
