What I Look For?

What is it that I look for? When I dream of you.

What I Look For?

What is it that I look for?
When I dream of you.
Do I see the women that came to me as a child?
Who are you? That you become me?
Do I know that the star in your eye is for me?
How do we become one without becoming none?

What is it that I look for?
When I see the face in the mirror:
Am I seeking something new,
Or an old life that I thought I knew?
What is this person that I am trying to build?
Is it a house for one or two?

What is it that I look for?
When I round a corner.
It is a face that has no answers, or
Is it an answer that has no face?
Am I facing the new,
Or hiding around the corner from the old?

What is it that I look for?
Now that I look for you.
So I may speak
Of all the wonders, I have seen. To share? To care?
To burden with my despair.

What is it I look for?
I look for the heart that beats with mine.
I look for the soul that sings a song with me. I look for the eyes that read my lines.
I look for the truth in me.
What else can there be.
What is it I look for?
I look not for you, but
Me.
