I Couldn’t Find You
By Robert Hewett Sr. and Leokadia Durmaj
I can feel the thunder and driving rain
Trying hard to shatter my window pane.
I can hear my heart pounding in my ear
Knotting my stomach and causing me to tear.
The deep shadows of my mind engulf me,
The lonely wind drowns my heart like the sea.
The fading train whistle in the dark night
Echoes the Whippoorwill call with all his might.
But I couldn’t find you
No, I couldn’t find you.
I stand mesmerized by the bedroom window,
Watching the crushing waves upon the shore.
The sea is dark as coal, so unforgiving!
Trees are swaying driven by howling winds
Seeing branches and leaves being ripped apart
Mercilessly, the violent storm surrounds us
Tearing apart Natures beautiful view
Silent prayers for mercy and strength to prevail
My thoughts turn to you my dear, where are you?
Must find you, could you be sleeping through the storm?
