I’m not there yet

You hear a knock on the door
You go see
If its me
But I’m not there yet

You hear footsteps through the trees
You look
But all you see now are rolling seas
I’m not there yet

You may see a light on the mountainside
On a stormy night
In a landslide
You go to dig a hole in the snow
But I’m not there yet

You may switch on your TV
And see a face in the crowd
That someone has covered in a shroud
Its not me
I’m not there yet

You may wake up in bed
And believe you see a smile from a forehead
You’ll jump up and down and then tears might roll down your face
but it’s not me yet
It’s just some space
For a word or a picture or a future place

You stick your hand down a dark well
Where you hear a small voice and you can see two eyes
And you try to grab a hand and you pull
And out comes a ghost ringing a bell
But its not me
I’m not there

You wake up in your home
That’s missing a wall
You go down to the graves
Of the dead from the war
You look at the names
Scratched on the floor
But I’m not there
I’m not there yet

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
