Higher Force Than I

If I had a choice in the course of my life
and if I wasn't affected by emotions like
love and fear, I might actually be
somewhere and left with some rationality,
but I am merely a pawn moved
by the hands of time, forced
by the fingers of fate
that control and connect all.
And even though I see no space, no place
for me in your future, something greater
and stronger ties us together.
This greater force, more powerful
than my emotions, keeps me
at your doorstep, waiting and hopeful.
