I don’t know if you’re out there somewhere

I pass by here every time and wonder
You’re in my thoughts and near to my heart
Even though our lives have moved apart
I went on my path
A route I wish you could have followed
But I could only lead by example
And hope that one day we’d meet again in better days
I say a prayer that tonight you are safe
Wherever your life may have taken you
And hope that light and love have held you close
Our dreams are meant to be chased
Like a butterfly on a warm summer day
Out of the dark cold shadows
That loom around every corner in these parts
I take one last look back
As I make my way out of the city
To the comfort of my home once again
