I've searched for you both close to home and far

away from everything I've ever known.

I've tried to figure out just who you are,

but all my tries have left me here alone.

I flew across the world to look for you.

I thought that I had found you once before.

But it turned out that you were not quite who

I thought you were, and so I've sought you more.

In halls of learning and of holiness

I've looked for you, but have not found you here.

Each failed attempt has made me less and less

expectant that you ever will appear.

They tell me that you'll come to me someday,

but honestly, by now, I cannot say.
