Every day I look beyond the horizon
Hoping to find what I lost a long time ago.
But all I see is the darkness seeping through
An emptiness that has no void.
What Faith gave me, Hope could not.
What Truth gave me, Reality could not.
What my Thoughts gave me,
My Vision could not.
The sea and the sky merge
When the horizon blurs from my vision
I still do not find what I am looking for.
I sit there still-watching, hoping, waiting,
with a teardrop upon my lashes.
For Father Time to pass
And for it to return,
What I lost a long long time ago.
