I'Ve Been Wondering Where You Were

I took the long way home,
To know what I had.
To know what in me wished,
And
To know what wished was missing.
I took the long way home.

I took the long way home,
To know what made me glad.
And,
That I felt so sad
Without happiness had.
I took the long way home.

Struggling what love to me had meant.
Inside I would admit it.
But outside it wouldn't show
What inside I really needed,
And know I craved it so.

And struggling what love to me had meant,
To be
Wasn't for me easy,
Yet
I wanted my need pleased.
Perhaps in me,
Too selfishly.
And

I took long way home,
To know what I had.
To know what in me wished,
And
To know what wished was missing.
I took the long way home.

And struggling what love to me had meant,
To be
Wasn't for me easy,
Yet
I wanted my need pleased and met.
Regretfully I almost left
What for me was always best.

And
Finally I see,
This love for me
Is you!
As it was and meant to be!
And I'll never leave,
You alone
To find love that I've known,
With you
Again!

I took the long way home.

'I've been wondering where you were.
Hoping you would find
What in my mind I knew.
And now you know this too.
Welcome you I do
Back home again! '
