The hunger to belong

Oh what is this longing
This deep sense of yearning
When I close my eyes
I hear my soul calling

Is it the fear
that I’m getting older
And now see my youth
Way over my shoulder

Is it the fear
or sense of foreboding
At doors in my life
That seem to be closing

I try to ignore it
While I try and write
But always the sense
Of this internal fight

I try to look out
At what help I could be
To someone who’s falling
And feels just like me

I have to succeed
In what I must do
So when the time comes
I’ll be there for you

I’ll guide the way
with love in my heart
And tell you that trust
And faith is a start

And maybe together,
When all this is done
We’ll find our belonging
And then we’ll be home
