Still Looking for You

Leandra, hear me calling you
Looking for us we never knew
Leandra, were you looking too?
Baby, did I miss finding you?

Leandra were you in the past
Where did I miss you on the path?
Did I miss you in life that passed?
Close my eyes, I hear your laugh

There were days and days of never
Fun, sweet dreams of sunny weather
Dark, stormy nights of us together
I’ll take them with you forever

Leandra, hear me calling you
Looking for us we never knew
Leandra, were you looking too?
Baby, did I miss finding you?

Close my eyes, I’m calling your name
Caught in your wild, bold, flowing mane
Caught in your smile, I’m perfect tame
For you I’d give all gold and fame

The days ahead come short and fast
The days behind are falling past
But if a day with you could pass
I could rest true forever last

Leandra, hear me calling you
Looking for us we never knew
Leandra, were you looking too?
Baby, I’m still looking for you.

Seeking a unique name for a character from my book Move, I started with Leandra for the name meaning “Lion,” which seemed befitting the character and the person who inspired the persona. The novel's theme required a different name, and I felt unable to rewrite the song without losing meaning. This song and another found their way here after changing the character name.
