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
