If You'Ll Have Me

Now that I have finally located where you are,
it brings me a small measure of peace.
For years, the voice inside my head has been unceasing,
'You've lost your best friend, your soul mate, you fool! '
A person is so fortunate to find their soul mate at all
and I pay for my foolishness every day.
I have been so damn lost without you-
it feels like my life has been on hold since 1991.
In my quest to find you, knowing you were out there somewhere,
kept me going.
I had hope, hope we'd be together again.
Without that hope, my life is utterly empty.
Do you want to be together again?
Do you need to test the waters first, so to speak?
Please give me an answer and put me out of my misery.
If you'll have me,
I'll do everything I need, to make it happen.
My heart is waving like a flag on my sleeve.
