Here We Are


Here we are . . . You and I

In this place together

In this time of despair

Under a sky where planes go by

Where life goes by

Together . . . we move from place to a place

In time

From where we have been

To where we will be

From what we have known

To what we will encounter

If there should be joy . . . it would be from what we have done

If there should be sorrow . . . it would be from what we have done

It is my heart that sings when you are near

It is my life that suffers when I am far from you
