Searching for signs and lifelines. Searching for you wherever you are...
FEATURED in the WDC. Newsletter - Spiritual: Epiphany - Editor's Picks, by Sophy , January 6, 2016

Yesterday is a broken hourglass
The future; far away
Everything comes to pass
I know, I must find a way

I stare at our pictures
Trying to find signs
They are not there, it figures
Just searching for lifelines

Love will linger till the end of time
And emotions simply fly away
You're gone, not anymore mine
I'll always remember your hair, so gray

What path shall I follow?
In which direction should I go?
It's so difficult, oh so hollow
Never thought I could take the blow

Did you see the light?
I was there until the very end
Tell me, was it warm and bright?
Show me in my dreams, I will comprehend

I hope to see you one day soon
In heaven, or in another lifetime
Who knows in my birthday, any given June
It will happen again ... sometime.
