Within Me . . .

I can’t feel pain I can’t feel me
but somehow my heart still feels thee

but suddenly this feeling sank inside
I am here and you’re not by my side

I stare at the clock as it steals our time
cut its hands as it commits that crime

feeling so far away from where you are
these oceans have just torn us apart

in moments of joy and sorrow
I want you today and every tomorrow

tears trickle down when I don’t see you around
I call you out but I hear no sound

so I search my heart, I search my soul
I find you there so I search no more

now all of a sudden you feel so near
and it’s your smile that I now wear

embed inside our memories as one
a lost feeling, triumph at once

the long distances suddenly closed in
as I realized you live within. . . . .
