Singing Blue


When my soul comes out to speak
Often when I'm looking for you
I'll find you waiting
Where time had never come to steal you
Nor words disturbed our silent longing
A place where meeting becomes eternal
I'll look for you
And there you'll be.

Then time beckons me onward, outward
Takes me from my place of peace
Takes again, your arms around me
Takes your kiss, your warmth, your feelings
Leaves me lonely once again.

All my life I've looked and found you
In lovers, dreams, and silent nights
You've come and said you'll be there soon, now
And all that's come is emptiness.

Come and go, if you must, you may
But dreams are for lovers
And I've lost my way.
