 From the Heart Through the Pen

Finding You

I look around the universe
Five years later and it still hurts
Tried to make the hands of time reverse
Submerged in these thoughts
Do you realize where I once was
Emerged just to once again become lost
Why is it when I need you the most
I can't even summon your ghost

Funny how this came full circle
Maybe there's no end to this cycle
Just when I was
Making it through these sleepless nights
Just when I was cleaning
The stains off my cheeks
I realized 23 Sep marked the anniversary
And just like it was yesterday
All over again I was Losing You

Again tears start to spill
Down their trodden path
There goes that emptiness feeling
One plus zero equals two
No, I haven't forgotten math
Just the wishes I still yearn for
Just your presence I still mourn for

Reminiscing back in the day
When Mariah and Boyz II Men still reigned
Living without your smile, even they never imagined
Still waiting for that sweet day
Still longing for your beautiful face
Lord, bring her back to fill this empty space
Wishing on a billion and twenty-two stars
One of them has got to come true

Tell me what it'll take to get through
And if not, please tell me
Has she at least received her wings
I've always known she owned a halo
And if all that's too much to ask
Simply tell her I said hello
Still joy to me she brings
Tell her I'm doing just fine

And if we ever had that final conversation
I would tell her…If I knew Losing You
Would be what it took to express
Just how much I Love You
I would've never hesitated
I would've shown you
This heart you created
Simply in Finding You
