The Lonely Old Man
One day I was there,
I was just aware,
Then something inside said, "Go somewhere! "
I had nowhere, I was just aware...
So... I created a place,
I made it of pure grace,
And I went there!
But still, I was the only one aware,
I was still the only one there.
It was then...I created you...
I needed you too...
