"Where Did You Go?"

I just have to ask -
I just have to know
I turned for a minute
Where did you go?

I always gave my heart
And all of my attention
Unconditional love
Was my true intention

Then only for a moment
And not for very long
I stopped just to listen
To a songbird's song

I felt that the song
Was being sung for me
So I briefly paused
Listening contentedly

Absorbing the beauty
I felt you slip away
Your abandonment
The price I had to pay

For only a brief moment
Something was for me
Why couldn't you wait?
Why couldn't you see?

Turned away for a moment
Where did you go?
Nevermind - it doesn't matter
I don't have to know
