This question hums in my head always
I try to find an answer everywhere
I searched … oh I did search if I could find an answer
Just to realize that I’ve been searching the wrong places
I long for who cares
Day in, day out, I search for that one
Oh, how much I searched
But who cares if I do?
In my quest for an answer,
The Priest told me to be calm
“How can you loose hope this easily?”
This has been the word that rings in my ears
But, how long do I have to wait?
Yes! How long will I endure these lonely days?
How long will I stand been sad?
How long, how long … oh how much longer?
Like a flower in the garden I blossom
Like gold among other metals I sparkle
Like the sun among the moons and stars, I shine
But it all seems no one notices …
“Oh! My daughter, what makest thou cry?”
I guess this startled me from my slumber,
And … my eyes were filled up with tears like water trying to find its way by all course
“Wondering” I answered my shepherd. “No maybe thinking” I muttered “… that no-one really cares”
“Hmm”, I guess this was the response I got
And Oh! It was you that stared at me.
You! Where have you been all this while?
My love, my heart, and there you were staring at me
“I’ve been watching you from afar” my love
I’ve been patient my angel,
I’ve been loving you silently all awhile, yes, these years past
But my love, I wait no more, ‘coz I’m dying of your love
Everything seems to brighten up, yes, even night seems like daytime
Oh my heart, I shouted “My love, my saviour”,
Yes, you’ve saved me from these anguish, these shame of the past
The Priest was right, and I’ve wiped up my tears, thanks to my Shepherd, ‘coz someone surely cares!
