I Search For You


I search for you in every face,

A mighty Tower,

Staunch, head held high –

Puissant words

That carry me away

In their flooding humility.


I search for you in every eye,

An evincing window

Clear as Diamond –

And yet a deep, dark ocean

That washes over me,

Warm and salving.


I search for you in every voice,

A deep, resounding power

That fills my heart

With a melodious hum –

A velvet feather that

Dulcetly caresses my

Restless being.
