Do I Know You
A piece of me has been missing for so many years.
Families that were so far apart, causing us tears.
I have Grandparents on both sides that I never knew.
I have relatives I haven't seen since I was two.
No phone calls, no letters is all I remember.
Did you even know my baby was born in September?
Growing up knowing you were out there haunts me everyday.
Never being able to call you or what I would say.
Life passes us by, we can't get it back.
Our lifes led so seperately, unable to keep track.
If I passed you on the street would we know who we were?
Would I have to glance back just to even make sure?
The same blood thats in me is in you as well.
In reflecting back it's sure hard to tell.
Do I know you, do you even know me?
The only thing we share is our ancestry.
