What we’ve located has already been found.
What we’ve lost is no longer around.
We’ve misplaced it, or its where lost things go!
What we wouldn’t give to somehow know.
Where we look isn’t always logical.
Where we left it was surely practical.
We trace our steps, but it doesn’t come to mind.
We’re desperate for any kind of sign.
What we’ve lost is near and dear to our soul.
We feel anxious as the feeling takes hold.
We know it’s there and we can’t help but look.
When we find it, we hope it’s worth the time it took.
