On Finding Love

Sit with me in a quiet place in my soul,
shut out the world and rest.
I looked for so very long and am weary,
false starts and many deceptions.

I was always looking for you,
You without a name.
Why did you make me wait,
why all the concessions?

All the missed years, the happy times
that could have filled them.
But I shuffled the sorrow and loss,
biding my time for you.

But you were cruel and unkind,
and why must I suffer?
What debt did I owe, why,
Why must I prove my worth?

Commanding the seen and unseen,
launching my ship and more.
How do you guide those,
those unknown and foreign to you?

Everyone desired to find,
all wanting one, one wanting all.
Selfish joy, greed, and envy, hiding you.
But I was always looking for you.

But you no longer tarry.
No more misses or wrong tries.
Seven years of unending light,
to love, to live, and to marry.

I bask in the radiant sun, warm,
Pink fleshed, clear eyed,
Feeling whole with you.
Feeling whole without you.

Your quiet calm, your smile,
Greet me each day without fail.
No wrong reaches me now,
my protective balm.

Sweet nothings are nothing,
My pledge means more,
to rise and meet you
and worry together nevermore.

Take my hand, and I will take yours.
Let us be together, here, now.
A peace, a pause,
My personal and permanent vow.

Sit with me in a quiet place in my soul,
shut out the world and rest.
I was always looking for you,
I was always looking for you.
