Where were you?

lonely-person

I got home from school, mad at everything.
I got told off… because… Well, because of nothing.
I walked to your door, hoping you’d say something.
Where were you?

I woke up real early on Saturday, hoping we could spend some time together.
I did my chores, all there was to do, then prayed to God we’d have good weather.
I run to your room – an empty bed…..
Where were you?

And then on Sunday, I thought, maybe after church…
But you dropped me at home, and drove off on ‘research’
I cried that night, and wondered aloud
Where were you?

There was this holiday…. I was so hopeful… Even an hour would have been fine…
But you had an event… ‘I have to be there for that friend of mine!!’
I had nothing to say… Just quietly wondered…

Where were you?

This Wedding today, that funeral tomorrow….
You never were there, to share in my sorrow.
Yesterday was work. Tomorrow I’m not certain
Didn’t you see how much I was hurting?
Now you say my life’s astray.
Why should you care, when you were always away…
Honestly….. Where were you?

Where were you?
