We all wanted someone like him,
Someone whose shoulder we could sit on
And know he’d never let us fall.
We all wanted to know
That everything was always okay
Even when it hurt so much
When we found ourselves stunned into tears and silence.
When you were young,
Your innocent eyes looked for him,
Only saw a glimpse of his feet passing by,
On the brown dirt road outside your door.
You missed him,
Knew what you needed.
As you looked for him, the ones you looked to
Were looking for him, too!
Dear One, now that you are grown,
I’ll let fall from my lips to your ear
a sweet secret I love to tell.
The One you searched for?
He is inside!
He is inside the Whole World!
