I have walked through alleys,
and dark subways
That invited me in, with whispers of dreams.
Dreams they knew were dear to me,
Dreams I had dreamt of you.
I have walked tightropes,
edges of cliffs,
let go of my fears,
In the hope that you would come calling.
I have delved into dark dreams,
Dared to lose myself
Talked about my darkest summer nights
When there was no one to listen.
I have known loneliness
And lived with it,
Letting it fill me,
With shades of grey
Till i knew no one, and no one knew me.
I have written about memories
No one knows are real
And waited for the half-closed door
To bring your tidings.
Just when I had stopped
Searching for your face
In the crowd i was lost in
I heard you call out..
You found me, just when i stopped looking
And turns out,I never had to search.
For you, of the shy smile
Told me, with your eyes
That you would have found me, anyway.
