Searching For You

poem by: Rachel Cartwright
Written on Apr 17, 2012

There I was just searching
 Searching to be happy
 Looking for someone to love
 And for someone to truly love me

There you were just standing there
 Just waiting patiently
 You knew I'd come around
 You waited all this time for me

Then I walked right past you
 Without a second glance
 You looked at me so peacefully
 Yet I didn't give you a chance

And there I was ignoring you
 When you had something important to say
 You were gonna tell me that you loved me
 And that you were the only way

The only way to happiness
 The only true love to be found
 But still I had ignored you
 So I didn't hear a sound

But then I went on my way
 To search again once more
 Forgetting all about you
 Searching again to be happy once more

But then one day it hit me
 I was really wrong
 You were the one I had been searching for
 The one I wanted all along

So then I came running to you
 In your arms I fell and cried
 I said that I was sorry 
For pushing you aside

Then you said you had forgiven me
 And that you'll always love me too
 You had given me eternal happiness
 Now that I've found you
