    it seems no matter what I do that still you stray from me
    and deep inside the midnight hour I humbly pray for thee

    haven't I done enough for others, when will I receive?
    still you have not appeared but not because I don't believe

    I know I have achieved great things and my life has purpose
    but despite my accomplishments I sometimes feel worthless

    I have an abundance of fruit with none to share my yield
    I am the most beautiful rose yet trampled in the field

    just one to uphold and protect is all I truly need
    just one to honor and respect, one to nurture my seed

    but every day I wake to find I must go on alone
    daydreaming must be meaningless because you're still unknown

    wishing to look into warm eyes and see the Love inside
    find comfort in strong arms that hold me close til fear subsides

    someone whose conversation stimulates and feeds my mind
    exclusively will cherish me...but will I EVER find

    this king.....I yearn, and hope, and pray and dream that I will see
    perhaps only a fantasy is all you'll ever be...
