the quiet of the night

the quiet of the night

has come upon me

as I sit here in the silence

and listen to the absence

my heart tiptoes

across the syllables of mist

deep within the recesses of my heart

wondering where you are

when will I find you

what is this longing

I feel within

what is it that keeps me searching

why have you eluded me

I find YOU

in the children’s smiles

I find YOU in my friends

I find YOU in the SUN

I find YOU in the MOON

I find YOU in the Stars

yet…I am restless still…

and

still…

I seek you…
