Where were you as I carried my father’s coffin?
I looked for you in the mourning crowd.
Where were you when I trembled in fear?
I called for you.
Where were you when I cried out in pain?
I waited for your touch.
Where were you in the lonely nights?
I reached out for you.
Where were you as I fought dark forces?
I prayed for you to stand by my side.
Now you are here as I brave the world.
I feel you holding me.
You are here as I close my eyes at night.
I find you in my dreams.
You are here touching my body.
I feel you like a gentle breeze.
You are here when I falter.
I feel you catch me.
You are here in my heart.
And the distance between us is closing.
