In a single second I have a thousand thoughts.
I visit a thousand places
and see a thousand faces.
I see a thousand sights,
my feet walk a thousand miles
and I see a thousand smiles.
I touch a thousand hearts
and see a thousand stars.
In a single second
I am everywhere but here.
Then in a single glance I see you,
and I know I have found home.
This home has no walls
and it has no floor.
This home is not a place
but a response to your face.
A journey, an honor placed upon me
and when I look upon your eyes I see my destiny.
And in the beating of our hearts i know;
that every path I took,
every darkness bestowed upon me,
every tear that fell,
was for you.
In a single second I am everywhere
in a single glance I am always near.
