Print Save Become a Fan
It was yesterday I began my search for you,
I knew you were there, but where?
The years, they swept past,
one after another, until forty two had amassed.
Many times, I paused..foolish dreamer, I thought.
Too long now it's been,
She'll not know me, not care,
this search is for naught.
How to stop...this quest of mine
I could not, would not...
I felt her,
She is my lifeline.
She does not know me,
but I know her, and I knew she was there...
My spirit bled tears of sorrow,
not knowing if ever..
we would share a tomorrow.
But find her...I did.
She knew me, she cared!!
So glad am I now,
that I did not stop.
Our lives now shared.
The years we have lost,
cannot be brought back.
The tears and the laughter,
of times long past.
So here we are, after all this time...
sisters again, made whole.
New joy is felt, as our spirits entwine...
our lives now shared...like sweet wine..
dedicated to my sister, Evelyn Norris, who was lost to me for 42 years...last seen in 1959....found in Nov of 2001....
