Where were you?

PROMPT: Where Were You?

1

Where were you?

 

You were always here when the sea was calm,

And then the boat began to rock,

And I needed you to help me ready the sails,

But you were gone...

Where were you?

 

You were always by my side when the world was still,

But then the earth began to shake and walls began to fall,

And I needed to you to help me stand, 

But you were gone...

Where were you?

 

Your were always here by my side when the sky was blue and bright,

But then it became gray and it began to rain, 

And I needed you to help me find shelter from the storm,

But you were gone...

Where were you?

 

You were always here with me in the light,

But then the darkness over took,

And I needed you to hold me and comfort me,

But you were gone...

Where were you?

 

I often wondered were you had gone,

Maybe it was somewhere

Where the sea was always a placid sheet of glass,

And the earth was at peace and the ground was still,

Where the sky never lost its bright blue color,

And it was always light...

 

I often wonder,

Where were you?
