if I were to die tomorrow, don't weep for me
rejoice in my joy of finally finding peace and heaven
where all the pain will finally leave me.

Where is love to be found
I have searched
looked around

Where to look
Around a corner
hidden inside a nook?

Where to find
At the store, next door
inside my mind?

Where is love to be found
Will it knock with silence
or a pounding sound?

A forgotten face from childhood appeared, Smiling a greeting, recognition was slow to come. Conversation was general and a reminder that tomorrow was a 33rd birthday for one. I looked at my cousin, the wrinkles upon her face, and felt pity that the drugs and the alcohol had taken her beauty leaving an old looking woman in yet a young body.

Somehow you stepped into my mind
I could not shake you from my thoughts
Although you have remained a mystery
I still let my mind wander to thoughts of you
Maybe it's the mystery
or maybe it's just the thought
