I Looked For You


I looked for you
I looked everywhere
In the house
You weren't there.

I looked in all
The hiding places
A little girl would hide
You weren't there.

I wandered the neighborhood
Lost and alone.
I stopped by the grocery store
I checked the church
You weren't there.

I looked in the woods
Next to the house
I walked through
The old labor camp
Next to the woods
You weren't there.

Then off by the highway
I saw you.
I saw you get
In the constables car
And as you drove away,
Your eyes met mine.

Right then I knew
You were in as much pain
As I was.

My heart ran after you
But my legs wouldn't move
My heart cried out to you
But my mouth wouldn't work
My heart waved to you
But my arms were stiff
By my side.
My heart heard yours calling
But my ears were deaf.

But my heart knew
Yes it always knew.
That this was not the end
My heart always knew
That you were mine.
And my heart always knew
That from the day
It was born
It had belonged to you.

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
