Oh, I know she’s out there
Could she be
Close by, maybe
Another place, another life
Hang on, we’ll see
She’s the mystery between the lines
Of a story I’ve read one million times
She’s the whisper in the wind
I can feel her closing in
And I’m starting to figure out
She’s the one I can’t live without
Oh, I know she’s out there

The midnight road’s a lonely place to be
On a moonless night like this for me
This dusty path has been ridden hard
Much like the roadway to my heart
I could swear I’ve been right here before
And I’m still not sure what I’m looking for
Circling the same old place
Feels like I’m lost in space

Oh, but I know she’s out there
Could she be
Close by, maybe
Another place, another life
Hang on, we’ll see
She’s the mystery between the lines
Of a story I’ve read one million times
She’s the whisper in the wind
I can feel her closing in
And I’m starting to figure out
She’s the one I can’t live without
Oh, I know she’s out there

This ain’t no fantasy
This life of mine
But that don’t mean there can’t be
A happy ending this time
No, this ain’t no fairytale
No happily ever after
And I guess that’s just as well
Because I’d die to hear her laughter

Oh, but I know she’s out there
Could she be
Close by, maybe
Another place, another life
Hang on, we’ll see
She’s the mystery between the lines
Of a story I’ve read one million times
She’s the whisper in the wind
I can feel her closing in
And I’m starting to figure out
She’s the one I can’t live without
Oh, I know she’s out there

Just one hug
Just one kiss
One simple touch
Could be the cure for all of this
But with a heart that’s gone amiss
I’d not be satisfied with just one kiss
One hug just wouldn’t do
Unless followed by one million more from you

Oh, I know she’s out there
Could she be
Close by, maybe
Another place, another life
Hang on, we’ll see
She’s the mystery between the lines
Of a story I’ve read one million times
She’s the whisper in the wind
I can feel her closing in
And I’m starting to figure out
She’s the one I can’t live without
Oh, I know she’s out there

But with a heart that’s gone amiss
I’d not be satisfied with just one kiss
One hug just wouldn’t do
Unless followed by one million more from you

If I ever get from here to there, it’ll be by the grace of God. I’m living a miracle and I thank God for that everyday. The age old philosophical inquiry goes, is the glass half full or half empty? Neither. My glass is twice as big as it need be.

Even so, I have my struggles. Loneliness being a big one. I’m used to it. At times, I even prefer it, but not all the time. I feel torn between many worlds. I’m not yet sure which world to call my home. Maybe my home is not meant to be of this world.

Who am I? Am I Mexican American or just American? Am I a signing Deaf or an oral deaf? Am I Protestant or am I Catholic? Am I a writer or an empath? Do I exist to see, smell, taste, touch, love, ponder and connect with others or is it because I do these things that I exist?

Who am I?

I wonder, will a time come when I learn to embrace the silence that envelopes my existence, not because my earthly ears cannot hear the voices surrounding me, but because my Divine Mentor has enabled me to leave them speechless?

Will that day come? Will I one day understand why God decided it was not in His will to have me hear the voices of this world? Could it be that it was His voice I was to focus on all along?

Who am I?
