Where You Are Tonight

I wonder where you are tonight
as all that I absorbed this day
sinks softly into me

I search the nighttime skies
in need of yet
another lullaby from you
yet you are absent

as if you chose to link
into some other linear level
of this life's reality
instead of flying free
with me tonight

yet there, a star
is promising a wish
and my wish is just a kiss
and your embrace

for to live without your grace
is just too much to ask
as I sit and wonder
where you are tonight . . .
