Where Is Eli?

Was it a whisper in the dark, or was it madness?
Calling my name again
A regret, business unfinished, problem unresolved
Did you feel that? I thought I felt it...
A hand on my shoulder
A movement — always behind me
Goose-pimply, eerie and odd
Is it a trick of the mind, or is it God?
Where is Eli? I have a question
And in my dreams, there is life
Night meanders into my depths
And it drags me, taunts me, beckoning
I need to find the way
The portal
The door
Into that other side
Where I am me
And all is as it should be

The “Where is Eli?” line is a biblical reference from I Samuel 3.
