There is a lock on these lonely doors,
And I don't know who holds the key.

I even ask the question,
Who is it?
But no one will answer me.

My key must be lost'

I walk down the snow dusted streets

As winter slowly fades away into spring
I noticed there is still no chance in those
Rejected and lonesome doors

Solid and Strong

I travel to places far and unknown

Rattle the doors with their
Rust filled lock

I choke up as it fits
And turns easily

Whole and complete

Into place

Then there is his heart
Just the same as mine

My Search is over'

My Key is found

I can finally conclude
With tears of joy that...

I wrote this piece in the view that the doors represent my heart and that I'm missing the person who holds the key to unlock them. Every person has a key to the doors of the person whom they are supposed to be with on golden chains around their necks. They just have to find that person by testing the keys in the locks of other people.

This piece is written for everyone who is still searching for the one who will complete them. Trying to find the "Key" that fits their "Doors".
