Where Did You Go? - Poem by Edwina Reizer

How do I know you?
Not by name.
How can I know you?
You're not the same.

I met you long ago
when I was born.
Couldn't even see yet
on that morn.

But still I knew you
right away.
You were all around me.
I thought you'd stay.

I breathed you
into my tiny heart.
And as I grew
you still were a part

and I knew you,
knew you well.
I was so happy
I'd come to dwell

where I could see you
And now I'm older
and sad to say.

Where did you go?
Where are you?
You started to leave
and then I knew

that I don't feel you
And that just makes
my heart real sore.

It took me 70 years
to know
your name was 'Freedom'.
Where did you go?
