Soulmate

All night long on my bed
I looked for the one my heart loves
I looked for her but did not find her
My soulmate 
I looked high and
I looked low but 
I could not find her
My soulmate
So I began to ask around
Have you seen her
The one my heart loves
The one I looked for 
But couldn't find 
No said the man
But who is this person 
That you looked for 
But could not find
She is my soulmate I said 
The one who has my heart
The one I looked for but 
Could not find 
So I continued to look for her
My soulmate
I looked to my right and 
I looked to my left but 
Still could not find her 
My soulmate
So I began to ask around 
Yet again 
Have you seen her 
The one my heart loves
The one I looked for but
Could not find 
No said the lady
But who is this person
That has your heart
She is my soulmate I said
So I continued to look for her
But could not find her
I looked high 
I looked low
I looked to my right and
I looked to my left
But could not find her 
Then I began to pray to the Lord:
O' Lord help me
Have mercy on me
Please lead me to my soulmate
The one who has my heart 
The one I looked for but 
Could not find
Then the lord said: 
I have heard your prayers 
And found you righteousness
And virtuous 
In my eyes and will 
Lead you to your soulmate
Stand and turn around
My child
And when I did she
Was right there
Looking more beautiful
Than anyone that I had
Seen in my life
Then the Lord said:
You have looked high
You have looked low
You have looked to your right and
You have looked to your left but 
Could not find her
I said yes
My Lord I 
Could not find her
Then the Lord said:
You have looked all of the places
But never straight ahead
She was in front of you the whole time 
And I said thank you my Lord
Then the Lord said: I have found
Your soulmate now go in peace my child
I could not believe it after all of
My searching I finally found her 
My soulmate 
Now I'm going to kiss her and never let her go 
Now I can rejoice because I finally found 
My soulmate
