The Girl I Missed (the Woman I Caught)

I listened to the organ music
Drifting towards me again
You were so young
Just around the corner
But forty years away

Sweet child in my mind
I can bow my head now
Present God with myself
The once lonely boy
Knowing love now instead

I wonder what you were
A little girl with her friends
Or thinking of love one day
I’m here for you now
I wish I was there then

How did I live without you
What I know crushes my heart
But it no longer resembles itself
I can’t be what it was I was
Now I’m the love for you today
