Found…and Lost

FOUND…AND LOST

I didn’t know I was lost
until the day I realized
I had been found

I didn’t see you coming
one day I looked up
and you were there

I didn’t know I could feel
such fullness of joy
‘til after I met you

I didn’t know true love
until the day
you uttered those words

I didn’t see it coming
one day I looked up
and you weren’t there

I didn’t know pain ‘til now;
I am
lost.
