that day

what were you looking for that day

i saw you in the crowd?

were you feeling a little lost?

i only saw the frown.

were you running from the madness?

out only for a breath of air?

it looked like you were sad

when i saw you standing there.

the sky had changed to rain

but i didn’t really care

because once i saw your face

i was totally unaware.

i smile when i recall it-

i remember it so well;

my sunshine on the best days-

sometimes my living hell;

but through it all i remember

and i’ve never seen it since-

the emptiness i know was there

that day i looked beyond my fence.
