Search For Me

Search for me in the most obscure places
Call my name and select me from all the faces.
Close your eyes and sense me, I shall be waiting
I can light your flame, so do not forsake me

Perhaps you are an extraordinary man
Who seeks that which you most desire
The thing you hope will light your fire

Then do all that you must do by the book
Be fleet of foot and wide eyed to look
Time is of the essence to enjoy my presence
In order to succeed in meeting your fate
For pity’s sake, do not be late

Follow my scent in the still morning air
Do all that must be done if you dare
Match my resonance to the beat of your heart
Get on the right trail, do not fail or fall apart
Follow your instincts and warnings
Listen to the faint sound of my calling

Maria, these are sensuous and stern instructions - exactly what a man needs. Especially one who seeks which he most desires!

There is so much beauty in these words - I love the plaintive call- 'search for me in the most obscure places'. I am glad I came by and read this work. voted up/awesome!
