I look around, I look around
I see new faces, but cold hearts
I ask around, what is your story?
Where do you come from?
Where do you go?
What are your people like?
What stars guide your travels?
I receive many different answers
But all linked to the same shadow
I feel lonely & stark naked before you
My God, I’ve given everything to
My dreams, my hopes, my family
My heart, my satisfaction, & my time
I hoped to see a fruit bearing tree
Yet my tree is as barren as could be
Cold from the winter of my trials
But alive nonetheless
I can think back to a time that I knew
Nothing & I was happy
& now that I’ve opened my eyes
I’m bitter & lonely
But strangely, underneath my surface
There’s something alive that wasn’t before
Deeper than emotions can float free
There is a locked room, shared by You & I
Where we express our love for each other
In more ways, than my imagination can sway
That’s why you mentioned, a treasure so great
That I would give away
Everything I have, everything I own
Just to have it
So here we are, together in that room,
Locked away for all of eternity,
My world empty-handed,
But my soul overflowing
