My love for you never really left my body
It stayed even when you wondered off
I don’t blame your wondering
How would you have known about my love
I kept it hidden for a reason
I guess I never thought you’d wonder that far
Maybe up the road but I stood by the gate waiting for your return
Day became night and night became day
I stood waiting until it became obvious that your return wasn’t near
Maybe you’d gotten lost and couldn’t find your way back
So I stood for more days, waited more nights
Then I finally lost a little bit of hope
My own hungers urging me to come inside
I found different things inside to keep my mind occupied
But every so often I’d go to the gate
Pier off in either direction to see if you’d finally found your way home
And each time I lost a little hope
