 reflections

everlasting gobstopper


I've searched the memories of my mind
I've searched through history
I've searched through time
I've searched in the place that I looked in last
I've searched through every looking glass
I've searched every meadow and every field
I've searched every sword and every shield
of every brave soldier who has faught in vain
to search and search and search again

I've searched sailor's stories of shipwrecked fleets
I've searched under the tiny patter of children's feet
I've searched every dream and thought in town
I've searched every slipper and dressing gown
I've searched the pages of all the famous books
I've searched every glance, the stares, the looks
I've searched every chapel and each church too
to find I find my search starts anew

I've searched sea and sand and sand and sea
I've searched every cut finger, every grazed knee
I've searched under every stone and every rock
I've searched every drawer and every sock
I've searched every day and every night
I've searched every black and every white
I've even searched the rainbow's bend
I found a pot of gold but my search won't end

I've searched the moon, the sky, the stars, the sun
I've searched those who have lost and those who have won
I've searched under every blanket and every rug
I've searched every hole every dog has ever dug
I've searched until I've forgotton what I'm searching for
and then I've searched and searched and searched some more

I've searched across the universe
but that only seemed to make things worse
I've searched every myth and every fable
I've searched every restaurant and every table
and I've searched every Big Mac and every Whopper
but I still never found an everlasting gobstopper
