Where’ve You Been?

For Tom and Sylvann Nicholas, 55 years married.

Where’ve You been?

Claire had all but given up
When she and Edwin fell in love
She touched his face and shook her head
In disbelief she sighed and said
“In many dreams I’ve held you near
Now at last you’re really here”

Where’ve you been
I’ve looked for you forever and a day
Where’ve you been
I’m just not myself when you’re away

He asked her for her hand for life
Then she became a salesman’s wife
He was home each night by eight
But one stormy evening he was late
Her frightened tears fell to the floor
Until his key turned in the door

Where’ve you been
I’ve looked for you forever and a day
Where’ve you been
I’m just not myself when you’re away

They’d never spent a night apart
For sixty years she heard him snore
Now they’re in a hospital
In separate beds on different floors

Claire soon lost her memory, forgot the names of family
She never spoke a word again, and then one day they wheeled him in
He held her hand and stroked her hair
And in a fragile voice she said

Where’ve you been
I’ve looked for you forever and a day
Where’ve you been
I’m just not myself when you’re away

No I’m just not myself when you’re away

  1. Hi Mr Nick & Sylvann, huge congrats on your 55 married years.
    I am never on Messenger, so Tom Boyd gets all the credit for inviting me in and there you and Syvann were.
    Nice looking couple.
    Roger
