Without A Trace

You went away without a trace
If I could only again see your face
Looked for you at every corner
Grieved for you just like a mourner
I saw you in the stars up above
Twinkling in the sky, just like my love
Saw you in the waves over a stormy sea
Sitting alone under the weeping willow tree
Fleeting thoughts of you always came to mind
Searching for a jewel that's so hard to find
Walking down a dark and lonely narrow street
Saw some faceless strangers that I happen to meet
You went away without a trace
The fear of never having to see you once again
Bought a ticket and got on the morning train
I went to visit a place where we always met
A special place we shared I could never forget
You went away without a trace
It finally came to a stop that was my destination
I began to feel a tingling and a sweet sensation
A warm and tender feeling raced up and down my spine
You ran towards my open arms and was forever mine

Sincere, sad, sweetly poignant with a happy ending. Well rhymed and cadenced. A pleasure to read. Love those happy endings-10
It is nice of a person to go in search of a friend. It is a wonderful feeling to find the friend and taking into arms.
A sweet poem full of warmth and I am happy that the relentless search for the lost face finally ended in a happy way with the person himself coming to your open arms, never to be separated again!
