Oh, Love, where dost thy spirit dwell?
In the misty roar of a sea shell?
In a shadowed forest's docile trees?
In lonely hearts ridden with disease?
Within a golden grail or braided strand
Of knowledge I can't understand?
Oh, Love, dost thou lie in my heart,
Seeking to tear my world apart?
For I've searched the oceans far and wide,
To every corner I, myself, might hide.
I've searched the desert's burning sands,
I've searched the lines of my own hands.
I've searched islands, I've searched mountains,
Buried streams and blissful fountains.
I've searched the stars of the summer sky,
The tears of a subconscious cry.
I've searched with vigor, passion, desire,
My heart with wings, my soul on fire.
I've searched Pride and Humility,
All you possibly could mean to me.
Oh, Love, I 've wandered on this quest,
Searched, most assuredly, in jest.
Till, alas, with nowhere left to roam,
I found you waiting for me to come home.
**Thank you, Genny, for finding me when I had already given up on the search. Thank you for allowing me to be the me that I am and not a me one might hope me to be. Thank you for showing me love in every aspect of the word, and for the realization love isn't something to be quested, love just is. As you have been there for me, so will I be here for you, in all love.**
When God puts a tear in your eye,
He puts a rainbow in your heart.
