                                   Are You?                                          Are you the piece missing/ fro the puzzle of my life?/ Are you the chord missing/ from my symphony of longing?/ Are you the light at the end/ of my barren bleak tunnel?/ Are you the star that makes/ my every wish come true?/ I am sure you are.
