People ask me where am I going:
I tell them into the future –
Carrying the knowledge I have learned
Toting my heritage and traditions
Sharing the wisdom I have been given
With open eyes to see the beauty around,
With caring arms to comfort those I meet,
With listening ears to hear the cries of the children and laughter too,
With a smile to give or share with you.
People ask me what am I looking for: I tell them simple things,
Peace of mind while I sleep,
And love to share with someone.
People ask me where have I been:
I simply say in limbo,
Numb for years,
Staring out an open window,
Waiting for him.
