Where has it all gone?

I know it was here

But somehow it went away

I hear the voice on the other end of the line saying, "I love you"

Before I know it, I'm saying "I love you, too"

These words have been spoken before

It was always me saying them first

Now the love is gone

Where did it go?

I've tried to find it

It's hiding somewhere

Just below the surface

Maybe it was never there

Maybe the words were used to comfort me

Maybe I just imagined them

For now, I'll just keep looking and listening

Hoping that someday I'll hear a new voice

If the old voice comes back I will welcome it

But until it does, I must go on
