Trace

Searching for your trace

Look where I was found

Flying in the air

Forty thousand feet above the ground

 

Spinning like a wheel

Crashing like a car

And before I could feel

I reached so far

 

A thousand million lights

Flickered like stars so down

I was next to the moon

Looking for my town

 

Time was flying

And I was flying in space

With a wounded heart

Just to find your trace

 

Searching for your trace

Look how the path had grown

Where once we ran

Now stumbled on stones

 

The boulevard of an old house

It had cracks on its walls

I stood with the autumn leaves

Wrapped around your shawl

 

Coconut trees

 The ones we had grown

Splashing waves too

Had the same tone

 

Searching for your trace

Look where I stood

The balcony of May days

where we spent the noon

 

My heart was racing

As tears filled my eyes

I looked at the sea

They couldn’t answer my ‘Whys’

 

Three little lanes

Six little feet

That danced in the rain

So tiny and petite

 

That followed you in every aisle

That followed you here

To find your trace

To find you near
