Lost and Found
While traveling within my mind,
I stopped to see what I could find.
In a place called, "Lost and Found,"
Where lives lay scattered all around.
Just as I entered through the gate,
I saw the section labeled "Hate."
Where people who are sad and lost,
Pay in fear–the highest cost.
Down the road, to my dismay,
I saw the games that people play.
No longer needed by those few,
Who know what greed and lies can do.
To the right I saw the sign,
"Broken Hearts" and there I saw mine.
On it was a tag marked, "Claimed."
And you were the buyer named.
I picked my heart up off the ground,
And heard it sing the sweetest sound.
All could hear the words from miles around,
"I once was lost, but now I am found."
