Where were you?

Where were you?
When the skies poured down
And I began to drown
Where were you?
|
|

When days grew dark
And hope was dim
The future stark
Hanging on a weakened limb
Where were you?
|
|
When fear enveloped
and detained my mind
Ravaging my being
leaving little behind
Where were you?
|
|
When desperation with all its might
Fanned the flames that would ignite
The will to persevere and a savage fight
Where were you?
|
|
When the battle raged on
And hopelessness had gone
When my enemies failed
And I finally prevailed
Where were you?
|
|
Where were you?...Where were you?...
|
Where are you?
