Beloved I searched for you across the earths and skies for eons
and still you eluded me.
Once I met a river and asked if he had seen you
He answered that I should sit by his side and listen closely
that maybe I might hear you
I sat for a while but grew restless and moved on
I traveled a thousand years until I met an old man on the road and I asked him if he had seen you. Bent in half and grey of beard, he answered that I should sit under a tree and listen, that perhaps I might find you in the stirring of the leaves.
I sat for a while but after a while my heart grew anxious and I carried on my way.
I walked and walked until my weary body grew wrinkled and my hair became as grey as the clouds.
One night I could walk no further and stumbled and collapsed at the side of the sea with my face turned upwards to a black blanket of stars.
I asked the sea where you were, my Beloved and she replied that if
I sat quietly with her that I might find you.
Unable to move my weary body any further I laid by the sea and gazed up at the night sky full of stars, hoping to maybe see you there but you were not there. So I closed my tired, sad eyes and relinquished all hope of ever finding you.
And then I saw You. Bathed in glorious light within my heart. There you were smiling sadly back at me. There you were for a thousand and thousand years. For all my journeys across the earths and over galaxies searching for you in stars and storms, you were always with me my Beloved and all I needed do was turn my gaze upon my own weary, lonely heart.
