Where Are You?

Where are you tonight?
I wait and I watch
for some small sign of my deliverance

living life on memories
and what we might have been
remembering the taste and tone of you

the days we spent alone with all that is
one touch and we would fly
to worlds of magic, glistening

but then we had to say good-bye
as the world of other people interposed
and the doors to world of magic swiftly closed

and threw me back to where I'd always been
alone, in fact and fantasy, within

so here I sit, doors open wide
yet no one comes to be forever at my side
and suddenly I see
the freedom that I've won at such a cost
is meaningless without you

so now what do I do?
when life with you remains just out of reach
yet life without you brings but longing
and an emptiness

I would give away all I have been
to touch you and to feel the worlds spin
in harmony, as you and I
let go of everything and fly
